"When one thing is practiced & pursued, ignorance is abandoned, clear knowing arises, the conceit 'I am' is abandoned, latent tendencies are uprooted, fetters are abandoned. Which one thing? Mindfulness immersed in the body." -AN 1.230

Perhaps it would be useful to explore deeper what is meant by "judgment" here.

The immediate misinterpretation is a 'free-for-all, anything goes' which has already been debunked. But it seems to me that a much deep sense of what judgment is, is assumed. For instance, we generally judge with a reference to self, one's interests, opinions, etc. An awareness free from such judgment is possible only where there is a serious letting go of a sense of self, of a knower that judges. This letting go can only happen when the defilements have lots their hold on one to some extent, otherwise there is plenty of judgment.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5

What taints, bhikkhus, should be abandoned by removing? Here a bhikkhu, reflecting wisely, does not tolerate an arisen thought of sensual desire; he abandons it, removes it, does away with it, and annihilates it. He does not tolerate an arisen thought of ill will…He does not tolerate an arisen thought of cruelty…He does not tolerate arisen evil unwholesome states; he abandons them, removes them, does away with them, and annihilates them. While taints, vexation, and fever might arise in one who does not remove these thoughts, there are no taints, vexation, or fever in one who removes them. These are called the taints that should be abandoned by removing.
