Shamatha and Vipashyana

with Acharya Lama Kelzang Wangdi

Shamatha - calm abiding ( tib. Shine) is a widespread meditation practice that aims to bring one's mind into a state of sustained calm. This is the basis for many further meditations and the basis for any further spiritual development.

Vipashyana is an analytical meditation. With its help, we investigate the very mode of existence of phenomena, both those that have form and formless phenomena, such as mind factors. "Deep insight is the means by which we can completely end mind poisons and suffering" (17th Karmapa Urgyen Trinley Dorje).
