Standard

Dear Friends,

Did you ever look at someone else and think to yourself “Wow, he or she really seems calm and relaxed?”. Let’s talk about Samatha or “calming the mind”. Join us as we dig into part #3 discussion on this absolutely joyous book “How To Meditate” by Pema Chodron.

What is Samatha aka Shamatha meditation really all about?

Well, calm abiding it is about training your mind. Samatha (calm) is a prerequisite of concentration. Buddha taught that through breathing techniques we can establish mindfulness which will bring us insight and wisdom.

The Buddha has said that you gain two things from meditative practice:

Samatha aka Shamatha: Calm Abiding (steady the mind)

Vipassana: Insight (able to see and explore)

Join us to review Pema’s thoughts on the process of Shamatha

Namaste and Sat Nam,

Kat
