Geshe Ciampa Ghyatso - Meditation: the Path of fundamental intelligence
Teachings related to the four major preliminaries common to the ghelu, sakya, kaghyu and gnima schools.
Geshe Ciampa Ghyatso during the retreat teaches various meditation techniques and guides in their effective application.
The practice of Buddhist meditation is to work directly with one's mind, the confused variety of subconscious chatter, hopes, fears, thoughts and emotions of all kinds.
By sitting quietly over a period of time, one can see more clearly how the mind works, then develop samatha and vipassana.
Teaching recorded in 1985.
