The Six Paramitas: Meditative AbsorptionDecember 20, 2021 | 4 Comments
Audio-only version is here.
Meditation practice begins at 19:45.
Dear Open Heart Project,
Welcome to this short talk on the fifth of the six paramitas (or transcendent actions). You can jump in right here, but if you’d like to watch or re-watch the prefions videos, they are right here:
Paramita #1: Generosity
Paramita #2: Discipline
Paramita #3: Patience
Paramita #4: Exertion
And now we come to #5, meditation or meditative absorption. Here, meditation does not refer to what we do on the cushion but, as a transcendent action, is more about how we bring the mind of meditation off the cushion and into our lives. Please have a listen to this short talk (followed by a 10-minute meditation) to learn more. And let me know what you think! I always love to hear from you.
Finally, I’m very excited to let you know about a free online program happening between Dec 26-31 about, wait for it, the six paramitas! Each day at 3p ET, a different teacher will lead a forty-five minute session on one of the paramitas, including a short meditation, a talk, and time for discussion. All you have to do is sign up, which you may do here. Hope to see you there!
PS Two Open Heart Project Sangha members have each generously donated a year-long Open Heart Project Sangha scholarship.
If you are interested in applying for the scholarship, please fill out this short form by December 23rd. We will be in touch the following week.
