Over three full days, Rinpoche taught extensively on shamatha (calm abiding) meditation and gave a significant introduction to vipashyana (profound insight) meditation, and the way these two are related. In these several hours of teaching, translated by Paloma Landry, Rinpoche expounds on the key elements for these particular practices and the general approach to be taken for all practice, in order to ensure that our practice is that of an authentic path that will lead to the authentic result.
