This session will focus more on any questions from those who attended the session on September 23rd, 2017. It is suitable for beginners as well as those who participated previously and would like to review the techniques. The first session primarily covered the benefits of meditation, and setting the proper motivation. Geshe la will delve further and build on top of this foundation.
Samatha, means “calm, tranquil.” Samatha meditation is an effective, gentle way of training the mind to reduce negative and limiting thoughts. In practicing calm-abiding meditation, we can increase our ability to concentrate, control our over-active, unfocused minds and enjoy a sense of peace and tranquility.
