11 Settling the mind in its natural state, part 2

B. Alan Wallace, 13 Apr 2012

Like a bird hovering in the wind, still but very attentive, we observe the space of the mind and whatever arises in it. Through a process of elimination we discard every sensory field until we are left with the mental domain, identifying mental events such as memories, images, ideas and thoughts. This practice of settling the mind is also called ‘Taking the Mind as the Path’. Alan also answered questions related to Bodhicitta and Samadhi.
