Meditation #1: Is it true that Great Compassion helps single-pointed concentration?

  • Meditation #1: Is it true that Great Compassion helps single-pointed concentration?

  • Sit in a comfortable position. Focus on the breath single-pointedly for the benefit of others.

  • Let’s review what Master Kamilashila taught us.

  • To reach single-pointed concentration we have to open our hearts to others.

  • Decide from your own experience, if it is true.

    • Would wanting to end others’ suffering get you out of bed to meditate?
    • Would Great Compassion push you in meditation to find the cure for suffering.
    • Would Great Compassion keep you from hurting others, adding to their pain, and disturbing your mind.
  • Tip: Sometimes people have difficulty with analytical meditation.

  • The key is that you have to play two sides. You have to have an opponent there.

    • And then it’s a debate coming up with reasons and counter-reasons until you reach a conclusion.
    • So you can prove to yourself what is the truth.
  • The analytical meditation is a tool to root out doubt.

    • Don’t just accept things as the truth. Bring the doubt to the surface and question it.
    • Is it valid? or is it something else?
    • You have to come to the answer by yourself. Not because someone told you, but because you saw it. That is the purpose of an analytical meditation. It’s the doubt destroyer.
    • When you have conviction, then you will implement it.
    • People don’t act because they still have doubt.
  • What to Track in your Meditation. (That that gets measured, get done. ) 15-30 minutes time in the beginning. Better concentration for shorter periods is better to habituating long periods of distraction.

    • Track your meditation. Every time you meditate. Write down:
      • How long the meditation. What % did you feel you were on the object or note how many times your mind left the object.
      • The quality of the meditation. (Use 9 stages of meditation, where you are, if you can)
      • Something you learned. Simple or profound realization. Short, your more likely to do it.
      • Resolution about what to do from your meditation.

Meditation #2: The Embodiment of Great Compassion

  • Meditation #2: The Embodiment of Great Compassion

  • Your Holy Root Lama or whoever you see as the highest incarnation of goodness sits in front of you.

  • See them looking at you with eyes of total love. (Describe them in words to make their image clearer to your mind)

  • You’re so thankful that they have great compassion.

    • See that they want to keep you out of suffering.
    • That they want to raise you to your highest level.
    • Or they wouldn’t be able to teach you.
  • They wouldn’t have sacrificed themselves over and over to teach you.

  • Think about their qualities and how it relates to having great love in their hearts.

  • See a light coming from their heart. It fills your heart with Great Compassion for others.

    • You receive the blessing and feel what they feel.
  • They shrink smaller into the light and enter your heart, so you can carry them with you all day long.

  • Tip: Those are the two meditations you will do for class one.

  • You will have a natural propensity to do 29 minutes analytical and 1 minute Lama devotion or the 29 minutes Lama devotion and 1 minute analytical. This depends on your natural propensity. Try to do an even amount of both and become a balanced practitioner.
