09 Settling the mind in its Natural State

B. Alan Wallace, 11 Apr 2012

It’s a practice that is close to Vipashyana it’s similar to the close application of mindfulness of mental phenomena. Alan also answered practical questions from the students. What is the correlation between emotions and bodily sensations? Does the acquired mental sign in mindfulness of breathing interfere with the visual field? How to measure the progress of the Shamtha practice?
