This talk explores the art of cultivating samadhi by offering an initial understanding of it.
2016-04-05 From Samadhi Practice to Insight Practice 66:01
Donald Rothberg
We explore further the nature of samadhi practice, then examine the relationship of samadhi practice and insight practice generally. We focus for most of the talk on practicing "three ways of seeing"--seeing impermanence, dukkha (reactivity, unsatisfactoriness), and anatta (not-self)--with an emphasis on practicing with seeing impermanence.
