Vision and Mission: Buddhahood, Part 3
Now that we understand the three types of mind, we can learn how to meditate. Just as there are three types of mind, there are different mindfulness instructions. Here, Rinpoche gives instruction on basic meditation. First, he explains how to sit and to hold our hands lightly touching in meditation posture. When we meditate, we don’t slump forward, but we also don’t sit very rigidly.
In the video, Rinpoche demonstrates correct posture and eye position and discusses our focus. Again, he reminds us to keep the vision on buddhahood. By copying the Buddha’s instructions as we meditate, we are ensuring a good result. However, if we instead try to make lots of personal adjustments, then we may not have such good results.
Then, Rinpoche leads his audience in some minutes of silent meditation.
