Awareness of Awareness: On the edge of Vipassana

B. Alan Wallace, 05 May 2010

This morning we followed a second method of Shamatha without a Sign (Awareness of Awareness) as taught by Padmasambhava. This method included probing into the very nature of that which inverts and releases the attention and in so doing one may realize rigpa! Alan first explains in detail the confusion around this practice and its true potential, using a dream analogy. A greatly inspiring overview.

Afterwards we have the actual practice and a short outro about the parallels of this practice and Dzogchen.

A great way to start the day!
