Lions Roar : March 2012
SHAMBHALA SUN MARCH 2012 71 DOUBTLESSLY, MEDITATION PRACTICE is one of the most important and at the same time most confused subjects that we experience. It’s confusing because of our own expectations that the practice of meditation should bring about a certain sense of tranquillity, equilibrium, and spiritual “high.” I would like to emphasize that the practice of meditation as it was presented by the Buddha is no more and no less than working with yourself—sit- ting with yourself, alone, without entertainment, without further feedback and encouragement. The sitting practice of meditation is one of simplifying one’s basic psychology and one’s basic problems. Simplifying in this case means having no expectations about the technique, not expecting that the technique is going to liberate you or A Meditation Instruction “In keeping with how the Buddha taught, I would like to present the situation of meditation extremely simply, without metaphysical or philosophical overlay.” Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche teaching a student meditation, 1971. A yearlong series of teachings to commemorate the 25th anniversary of the death of Chögyam Trungpa Rinpoche, founder of the Shambhala Sun. PHOTOCOURTESYOFSHAMBHALAARCHIVES OCEAN OF DHARMA
