Alan introduces us to this practice also known as Awareness of Awareness, practiced by all four schools of Tibetan Buddhism by reading us Padmasambava’s Instructions. Here it is said the view arises from meditation rather than theory.

Additionally Alan answers four student questions:
-Has there been any research into the effects of meditation into other areas of the body for example the heart?
-Is doing a long term Shamatha retreat harder or easier with your partner? How do you deal with sexual desire?
-Why did Padmasambava’s instructions say practice for only one day?

Meditation starts at : 6:40
