Re: Shingon?

Re: Shamatha without an object

I find that different teachers explain this practice in different ways which can be confusing in the beginning. The best is to follow you teachers advice and not over think it. The most important thing is to recognize that presence of mind and allow for it to come foward

Re: Merging Theravada vipassana with the Tibetan version

There are many teachera that teach the four aplications of mindfullnes like tsoknyi rimpoche and alan wallace. I dont see why you couldnt practice both with more or leaa enfasis in one or the other. A stable balances mins is helpfull for every higher practice
