We lock onto an object, reify it and then attachment or aversion arises. The discovery model allows the mind to heal itself by doing nothing but maintaining cognizance.

Discussion of blessings arising from Buddha nature.

Meditation – Rest for a while without grasping. As the clarity and warmth of awareness becomes really obvious then explicitly attend to it.

Discussion of the five inner qualities necessary for long term shamatha retreat.

Meditation starts at: 18:15 (silent, front loaded at start of session)
