How to Meditate

Lama tells us “Since our time together here is so short, I just want to talk on the practical level” and then shares with us his profoundly experiential understanding of:

• How mantra is a tool for meditation
• How improper motivation is the cause of obstacles
• How right actions depend upon the wisdom from meditation
• How dedicating to others protects us from falling into ego

You can also listen to Lama guiding a short meditation to purify our body, speech and mind in order to remove obstacles to successful meditation. This multimedia title presents Chapter Four from the book Freedom Through Understanding.
