Questions include: 1. With that sense of “stillness and movement” I approach settling the mind .. however I am not able to stay still and “just letting the thoughts be” (appear, play out and disappear by themselves)… when a thought appears I feel that I am “cutting it off” in order not to move the awareness and when I let them be, I follow afte ...…
 
This session we head back into vipashyana, beginning with an excursion through the Chittamatra view. Alan explains the complete congruence of Dudjom Lingpa’s presentation with that of Prasangika Madhyamika proponents such as Je Tsongkhapa. It’s not a presentation of whether the domains of the internal, external and the appearances between actua ...…
 
Alan prefaces today’s practice of the meditative cultivation of compassion toward others by noting that we in the 21st century not only face global crises unprecedented in their gravity, scale, and variety, but we also carry the burden of being informed about them with unprecedented immediacy and depth. Faced with this reality, we must answer t ...…

Shamatha, Vipashyana, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen
 
This morning, Alan integrated all theories and practices we've been doing during these last five weeks. He started by coming back to the pith instructions from Panchen Rinpoche yesterday: examine very closely the way of existing or the way of abiding, the way you appear and the way you apprehend yourself. And then he explained that the way of a ...…
 
We begin the session by returning to the practice of Taking the Mind as the Path. In the introductory comments to the meditation, Alan mentions the two-fold division of Buddha-nature (1. the naturally abiding Buddha-nature and 2. the evolving Buddha-nature). One is already present, while the other is evolving, transforming (the latter is a deli ...…

Shamatha, Vipashyana, Mahamudra, and Dzogchen
 
This afternoon we come to the culmination of the series of discursive meditations which started with the four vision quest and the four immeasurables - bodhicitta. The definition of bodhicitta may seem religious, esoteric, abstract. Therefore, in today’s teaching Alan intends to bring it down to its roots. He begins by describing the state we o ...…

Fall 2015 Stage of Generation
 
Alan begins by saying that this will be a mellow session! Before the meditation on balancing wind and space, he extends briefly on the morning’s theme on how our conceptual frameworks determine what we observe and see. He quotes from Einstein and Niels Bohr. He explains further that once we label a phenomenon or idea, that “thing” becomes simul ...…
 
Alan begins by addressing the differences between a complex negation and a simple negation. He also makes further comments on the qualities of the space of the mind, inviting us to look into our own experiences to see whether the qualities he proposes for investigation are true or not. The space of the mind is three-dimensional, transparent, de ...…
 
The five obscurations (like fixation on hedonic pleasure etc.) obscure what? Substrate Consciousness. A single pointed mind is a natural remedy for all of the obscurations. Just breathing in an out doesn't trigger craving or aversion. If you can get over the hump of boredom, there's a sequence leading to well being, then clarity and stability u ...…
 
Alan starts with a question - is the traffic noise a fortunate or unfortunate circumstance? Ultimately for the Vidyadhara, whatever appearances arise are displays of pristine awareness. Meditation is on awareness resting in its own place with 20% peripheral awareness of breathing. After meditation, Alan talks about how to get from here to enlig ...…
