These systematic teachings are the subject of this book and the accompanying CD. The Lamrim presents a step-by-step method to tame the mind, and each person will find meaning and insight according to his or her level of understanding. As readers practice these meditations repeatedly, their comprehension and experience will transform and deepen even though the words used to spark the meditation sessions remain the same.
The first section of Guided Meditations discusses how to establish a daily practice, how to set up an altar, and how to approach the two kinds of meditation – stabilizing and analytical. The second presents the meditations. The third supplies an overview, instructions for working with distractions, antidotes to mental afflictions, advice for newcomers, and suggestions on how to deepen Dharma practice.
The accompanying mp3 CD contains over 14 hours of guided meditations. Individuals who live far from Buddhist teachers or Dharma centers will appreciate the personal guidance offered with these meditations, enabling them to begin and continue a daily meditation practice.
American Buddhist nun Thubten Chodron guides you through the Lamrim meditations. Fourteen hours of step-by-step meditations help the practitioner understand how mind, thoughts, and emotions create our experience.
