We start the afternoon session with meditation on mindfulness of breathing.

After meditation, Alan briefly finishes the commentary on the vipashyana section of the book Natural Liberation.

Alan comments on Buddha’s awareness, which is omnipresent throughout space and time. If one can cut through to primordial consciousness, this opens the door to reality. The practices we have been doing are not only for the sake of fathoming the nature of the mind, but also phenomena. Therefore, knowing the mind implies knowing the physical world.

Alan elaborates on the topic of tumo, levitating and other incredible and extraordinary experiences arising from samadhi.

The role of consciousness has been marginalized by the mind sciences. Alan encourages all of us to create a revolution. Let’s have contemplative observatories!
