Practice Texts

The foundation of Mind Training is calm-abiding meditation (Tibetan: shiné, Sanskrit:shamatha) which helps develop mental peace, stability, and focus.With a calm mind comes the ability to practice insight meditation (Tibetan:lhaktong, Sanskrit:vipasyana), which involves analysis of mind’s true nature.Through these practices of calm-abiding and insight we can remove the veils of ignorance andconfusion which prevent us from experiencing the peace and clarity that is already presentwithin our minds.
