October 5: Meditation on Tranquil Abiding
7 – 8:30pm
In each class we will engage in one lamrim (stages of the path to Enlightenment) meditation. Each class will consist of a guided breathing meditation, followed by a teaching to familiarize ourselves with the points to contemplate. This will be followed by a guided meditation on the lamrim meditation. After the meditation, there will be advice on how we can put our new understanding into practice in our daily life. In this way, we can deepen our experience of the lamrim meditation in the week ahead.
This class is based on the lamrim meditation: tranquil abiding. Actual tranquil abiding is a special concentration that is completed by training in the nine levels of concentration known as the “nine mental abidings”, and is conjoined with a special bliss of mental and physical suppleness. For these and following tranquil abiding meditations, we will hold great compassion as the object of meditation.
