Re: Awareness vs Internal monologue

I think that one does not necessary exclude the other. I use to avoid thinking everytime i could but it was interesting when my teacher gave me something to reflect upon and i discover that by thinking in a relax, and focus way i was calming my mind as if i was doing shamata practice.

Re: Ngondro

The following is an excerpt from William Van Poyck, who wrote it on death row shortly before being executed: I've already thrown or given away 95% of my personal proper...

Shorter liturgy and we are encouraged to make 10k acumulations of each first and then complete the rest. I have recived the instrucctions and lung but havent started yet (still ...

Re: closed eyes vs. opened eyes

Half open or open. I almost dont use eyes fully closed exept when my body is not relaxed enough and the tension makes my eyes cross. Also I findt it easier to do formless meditation and vizualisation with eyes fully open and looking straight foward. I find that i have more alertness with my eyes ope...

Re: Mindfulness vs Analysis

Ok. So in mahamudra and Dzogchen vipasyana is always conceptual. The only non conceptual vipasyana is the "true" mahamudra and dozgchen meditations?. Did i get it right? Close, but not quite. :) Vipaśyanā is not always conceptual. In Mahāmudrā, śamatha and vipaśyanā are considered to be innate to t...

Re: Mindfulness vs Analysis

Is analitcal meditation always considered discursive? I mean. We can analize our minds without asking questions in the form of internal talk. For example watching where thoughts arise from, stay and cease without asking " where do thoughts arise from". Is this discursive lagtong? Again, explanation...
