MEDITATION

“There are many thoughts that always arise, but thoughts are impermanent; they come and go. The mind from which they arise, however, abides like space; it never comes and goes. It is always there, it has always been there, and it will always be there. It is like space, or a vast ocean, or a mirror. It never goes anywhere, just like space.”  H.E. Garchen Rinpoche

All of these meditation sessions are good for beginners or more experienced practitioners.
