Awareness of Awareness: Resting in the Sheer Luminosity and Cognizance of Experience

B. Alan Wallace, 07 May 2010

This morning we practiced the final phase of Awareness of Awareness, and quoting from Alan’s great analogy in the introduction to this practice: “Putting it in the Oven.”
The title comes from the succinct explanation of the practice as described by Tsongkhapa.
This time it was just a brief 5 minute introduction and then we went into the meditation (as taught by Padmasambhava), the most profound of all Shamatha practices.

With this method, the path and the fruit are similar in aspect.

Enjoy as we did!

(And if you were wondering if I really had to use another sky picture – the answer is yes!)
