How does meditation practice develop with time?
With David Hope
“Having first accomplished shamatha, one proceeds to practice vipashyana. The reason for this is that vipashyana is seeing the nature of the mind as it is by observing it through discriminating knowledge; and in order to see it, one must start with shamatha, since it is absolutely necessary to have control over the mind to be observed, by making it workable”.
– Jamgong Kontrul Rinpoche
The path of meditation is not static, but rather, a process of continual change and deepening. We begin with the practice of Shamatha (making friends with ourselves) which is based on simplicity and precision. With time, this leads to and experience of Vipashyana, a vast perspective and a full connection with our world which comes from being present and alive to whatever arises in it.
This weekend will deepen our practice of shamatha, and explore how it transitions further into vipashyana and finally “Shamatha-Vipashyana”.
