“That which we most deeply yearn for is the thing that is already most fully present, already the very closest to us. Thus, our ancestral teachers, according to their own circumstances at hand, have always shown that Buddha is now, here. So, we place our focus now, here.” Harada Tangen. This guided meditation is in two parts. The first part is an introduction to calm abiding (shamatha): calming the mind without a meditation object. Next fortnight we will be exploring insight (vipasyana), a form of inquiry leading to insight into the nature of reality.
