All being’s mind is basically tranquil, peaceful and stable in its nature. Not knowing this brings us into restless and unstable states of mind, where happiness and suffering interchange. But by practicing meditation, wisdom and developing our goodness we can return to our primordial state of mind.
Shamatha (stillness) meditation is the basis for all other meditations, as it empowers our indispensable concentration and awareness. Consequently, Shamatha directs our mind to the treasure of wisdom, the experience of our Innate nature of peace and tranquillity. This again, leads to blissful and balanced state of mind, within which we are able to develop the power of unbiased compassion, love, joy and equanimity, for ourselves and for all other sentient beings. This balanced and blissful state of mind weakens the negative state of minds, which could otherwise lead to suffering.
During this weekend, Venerable Sungrab will mainly teach Shamatha meditation and other guided meditations. He will give instructions on Shamatha and some explanations on basic wisdom and Metta (friendliness) meditation.
