Calm Abiding Meditation
Calm Abiding Meditation Practice "There are many stages in mental development, but as soon as we are able to maintain the mind in a calm state, at that very moment there is joy and peace. This is reflected in the body becoming relaxed, and then the mind becomes more relaxed. As the mind calms down, the hidden enlightened qualities emerge more and more." —Venerable Khenpo Rinpoche The most basic form of Buddhist meditation is called "Calm Abiding" or "Shamatha" in Sanskrit, and is intended to rest the mind so that our primordial wisdom can shine through. Normally our minds are like "'monkey minds", swinging from one thought to another with very little rest in between. With Calm Abiding meditation practice, the mind can slow down and we can begin to become aware of our natural wakefulness. We can free ourselves from the tyranny of our thoughts and emotions so that our natural awareness can arise.
