Session 76: A Clarification of Buddhist Mindfulness and Awareness of Awareness Practice

B. Alan Wallace, 19 Nov 2010

There are some terms we shouldn’t misunderstand, because if we do, we can waste a lot of time of practice. Alan gave an explanation of such terms: mindfulness, open presence, Rigpa, according to the Buddhist and non-Buddhist perspective in order for us to see the difference.

After his brief lecture, this morning we came back into the first method of Awareness of Awareness (4th cycle), where we simply rest in the experience of being aware; a second part of the session followed by oscillating the awareness out into space, and inwards, inverting awareness into awareness itself, sustaining the flow of knowing.
