Tibetan Buddhist Lama Dza Kilung Rinpoche leads a 10 minute meditation to relax into the vast spaciousness of our heart and mind.
The extraordinary Tibetan Buddhist Lama and teacher Dza Kilung Rinpoche talked to us in Episode 74 about his short yet profound book, The Relaxed Mind. In this episode, he leads us in a guided meditation to open the mind.
Dza Kilung Rinpoche: This meditation has the Mahayana view; the openness of vast and especially heart and mind, a state of great rest and loving kindness, and compassion for all beings.
Everything around us in our environment is simply as it is. We are part of it and there is nothing good and nothing bad within this vast meditation or view.
This view lessens the partiality that could produce conduct that is harmful to self and others, something we must be mindful of and careful to avoid. We find more receptivity and contentment with our environment and with beings. That is openness.
As it is said in A Guide to the Bodhisattva’s Way of Life, “For as long as space exists, and as long as beings endure, until then, I may too remain to dispel the misery of all beings.”
So our attitude of open mind meditation, open heart-mind meditation is so that limitlessly try to open and feel very extended. Not holding any limitation and boundary between self and others.
Simply allowing yourself to feel that spaciousness free of boundary.
You may also call that boundless spaciousness.
Our attitude in meditation there is to heal all the limitations, anxiety, tightness, and narrowness that we experience through our mental world. We let heal all of this and let it go.
We present with this total openness.
During this meditation, whatever you see, whatever you feel, whatever you experience with internal or external world, you’re not separating.
Just let it be as it is.
Allow yourself to feel loving kindness and compassion to all.
Make sure you remember to relax and feel free to relax your mind.
