15 - The 4 stages of settling the mind in its natural state

B. Alan Wallace, 17 Jun 2019

For this session we jump right into the meditation.

After the meditation we go back to “Core Meditations on the Path of Mahamudra”:

  • The Lake-Born Vajra, Padmasambhava (The Enlightened View of Samantabhadra)

This presents the whole path of shamatha from the perspective of this practice, divided into 4 stages.
