02 Jul 2014 3:49 PM | Lama Christopher Coriat (Administrator)


PART ONE: FOUNDATIONAL PRACTICES

The Basis for Training in the Awakening Mind

1. First, train in the foundations of the path:

a) The precious human opportunity

b) Impermanence

c) Karmic habit-patterning

d) Defects of the unenlightened life


PART TWO: THE MAIN PRACTICE OF TRAINING IN THE AWAKENING MIND

Training in the Absolute Mind of Awakening (non-conceptual)


2. Sense all that appears as like a dream

3. Examine the insubstantial/un-originated nature of awareness

4. Let even the thought of emptiness release itself

5. Rest in the natural state, the ground of all, the essence of the path

6. In post-meditation, be a wizard of illusion

Training in the Relative Mind of Awakening (conceptual)

7. Train in giving and taking alternately

8. Breathe out the giving, breathe in the taking
