12 Settling the mind in its natural state, part 3

B. Alan Wallace, 03 Sep 2011

In this session we continue with the practice of settling the mind in its natural state. In shamatha, one must maintain constant flow of knowing at all times. When there is no mental object in the foreground to ascertain, know 1) the absence of thought or 2) presence of space in the background.

The meditation starts at 8:10
