TIBETAN BUDDHIST MEDITATION
In the Tibetan tradition a complete meditation session is arranged in four parts:
1) Setting a positive motivation that establishes a clear and beneficial direction for the session.
2) Settling comfortably into the body and focusing the mind through śamata (concentration) meditation.
3) Bringing one’s focus to an analytical meditation, which explores one or more aspects of the lamrim (stages on the path to enlightenment).
4) Dedicating the merit (positive potential) of the session to the ultimate happiness of all sentient beings.
This type of meditation can also include visualizing enlightened beings and reciting mantras.
Tibetan Buddhist Meditation is offered every Tuesday from 7:00-8:30pm, except the first Tuesday of each month, which is Meditation – Beginners’ Night.
