25 Shamatha Without a Sign - Concentrating and Releasing

17 Sep 2013

From Padmasambava – Natural Liberation
Place your mind in its natural state. Alternate between observing who is concentrating inwardly and who is releasing. What is the very agent that releases the mind and concentrates the mind? Steadily observe yourself, and then release again.
Question
Eventually the relaxation and concentration move together, what do you do when it’s time to relax and you are already at your most relaxed? With the oscillation you are developing greater clarity and greater relaxation. When reach the point that this is as sharp as I can get and as relaxed, then stop the oscillation for the session.
