The main body of any yoga method begins with meditation on emptiness, or, in Sanskrit, shunyata. This is sometimes called the shunyata deity, but that's just a philosophical term. Anyway, we're all meditating on emptiness already.

We started a long time ago. Ages ago. 

We begin our meditation on emptiness by contemplating the clean, clear nature of our own thought, or mind. This approach is important. First, it's crucial that we employ introspective wisdom to investigate what the mind is. Mind is the nuclear energy that produces all the different kinds of life. Basic Buddhist philosophy teaches that in the evolution of sentient beings' existence, the root of life is the mind. Mind is the creator of body and life. Over a series of four evenings you will learn how to use emptiness to counteract strong negative ego and how to meditate on the emptiness of self.

Thursday 3, 10 and 17 March at 6.30 pm - 8.00 pm, in the Gompa at Chenrezig Institute. No need to book, entry by donation. All welcome! Supper in the Big Love Cafe is available separately and must be booked before 10.00 am on the day of the event.
