B. Alan Wallace, 07 Oct 2014

In his brief instructions before the silent meditation, Alan reminds us of the importance, before all else, of releasing control of the breath.

After the silent meditation session, Alan returns to his commentary on the text (page 178, Natural Liberation) and explains the meaning of the statement, “When meditating, do not meditate on anything at all, for in the absolute nature of reality there is nothing on which to meditate.”

At the conclusion Alan answers the questions: - How different is it necessary to make the posture when ready to fall asleep after meditating in your bed for a time preparing to fall asleep?

  • For those of us who have not yet ascertained rigpa, how do we practice Dzogchen?

The break for the silent, unrecorded meditation starts at 2:34
