The Nature of the Mind Part 2

with Meditation Master Brendan Kennedy

April 28 - 30, 2017
Padmasambhava Meditation Center

A way to realize the nature of your own mind by practicing shamatha and vipashyana. The mind just being mind without being any thing is shamatha and vipashyana. The mind just being mind is shamatha and it not being any thing begins to see that it’s empty of any thing is the insight, vipashyana. If the mind can just be mind, then automatically it will not be any thing. By mind not being any thing, it will begin to see that it’s totally empty of any thing, yet aware. That is how the essence of mind is accessed or realized. The Nature of Mind is none other than the totally pure empty mind. We’re going to be working with Dudjom Rinpoche’s meditation instruction which prevents the mind from becoming something.
