Eva Natanya, 20 May 2020

On today’s session we will go through the five core preliminaries of the Khandro Nyingtik, leaving out Phowa and Chöd. Eva (Yangchen) suggests this as a daily solid foundation for shamatha practice. Before the practice, Yangchen talks about the four causes to be reborn in Sukhavati: foundational power to plant the aspiration, collecting merit, purifying obscurations, and the conducive condition of prayer. She clarifies some things about the amount of merit we have to accumulate; we don’t have to create Sukhavati.

Meditation starts at 10:50 , and is a transmission of the Khandro Nyingtik in Tibetan, with commentary by Yangchen.
