Alan continues “taking off another layer” and assisting us to overcome our addiction to doing and trying in this meditation. He gives an analogy of a car in neutral gear. Not going forward or backward but knowing it is running.

After the meditation talks about the difference between the Dzogchen meditation and Shamatha Without a Sign.

Moving to the text we examine the seven qualities of our own Rigpa, before moving on to Padmasambhava’s parable. This gives us an opportunity to consider a convergence between Buddhism and other contemplative traditions and modern science.

Meditation starts at: 24:23
