This extraordinary talk on meditation practice from the Tibetan Buddhist Path series is powerful for new and long-time practitioners alike. Here is the three-fold logic from Carolyn Gimian’s Study Guide for this series of talks.
- Ground: Understanding meditation and the Buddhist path as an evolutionary process, rather than a series of set stages or an experience of sudden enlightenment.
- Path: Shamatha meditation and the slow process of mindfulness are the basis for making a genuine journey on the path.
- Fruition: The next stage is vipashyana or working with awareness. This gives rise to the experience of egoless insight and nowness, or the fourth moment.
