Session 61: (Discussion Only) Encouragement for Practice, Expanding Awareness, Controversial Lamas, etc.

B. Alan Wallace, 18 Nov 2010

We started with a silent meditation with free choice on practicing one or more of the Four Immeasurables. Then Alan gave a little bit of advice and encouragement to all the meditators about dealing in a healthy way with all kinds of obstacles that arises on continuous practice. After that there were 5 Q&A. The first one about the practice of the Four Immeasurables, the 2nd, 3rd and 4th about the three methods of shamatha that Alan has been guiding and the last one about controversial teachers and how to deal those issues if we are interested in their teachings. For this last question Alan gave a superb and profound answer that we definitely recommend you to listen.
