Covid-19 Update

Normally, when we try to mediate on a virtuous object, such as our precious human rebirth, impermanence or emptiness, our mind does not stay tranquilly placed on that object. Instead it is constantly distracted elsewhere. At such times the mind is like a candle flame blown about by the wind. Such a flickering light does not allow us to see things clearly. Similarly for as long as our mind is blown about by distractions we cannot focus on our object of meditation clearly. If we could construct a protective screen of concentration around our mind, the focus of our meditation would become unmovable and we would have an undisturbed view of any virtuous object we choose.
