Meditation time

Saturday, March 20th, 2010

It struck me as interesting the other day that the Dalai Lama spends four hours a day meditating. And in one of the experiments that has popped up in the news an experienced meditator is considered to have done 10,000 hours. If you meditate for 2 hours a day, it’s going to take you almost fourteen years to become an experienced meditator. That’s some time.

Mindfulness of Sunyata

Tuesday, January 20th, 2009

All through the circle of apparent and transitory objects
Spreads the space of the clear light of the real, the ultimate,
In which all things have a transcendental being.
Forsaking all mental inventions,
Dwell in the pure state of sunyata.
Draw in your mind, centering it in the real.
Guide your attention with mindfulness,
Holding it within the real.

Kelsang Gyatso, The 7th Dalai Lama
