experience of your meditation also? How do you meditate?
Where do you reside and learn meditation?
>G: whatever is spoken from here comes from that place where
no within or without remain..... if you are speaking of
phenomena seen or passed by, why?
Phenomena is phenomena and not the goal......
There is a final death which puts an end to all such phenomena
of risings and fallings.......
It is this as many buddhist traditions refer to as Original Mind
which remains..... Once the Void or Nirbana or Nirvana has been
entered the rest disolves and rises no more...... what remains
is empty in nature.......
There comes a time when formal sitting meditation gives way to
spontaneous and active meditation..... then that also falls away
as a focus and sahaja or ongoing unhindered medtitation takes
place ...... even that falls away with Original Mind .... Satoris
may come and go until the last falling away which leaves in its
wake Original Mind..... that needs no practice to sustain it .....
Where was meditation learned ? mostly it came from deep
within as a response to seeking .... Would have to say if
classified it would be closest to a Zen tradition of being within
the moment and simply becoming aware .... This may be done
either in formal seated meditation to begin with and then expand
to a living and daily momentary happening.....
i now live in Seattle washington and spent 5 years in Rishikesh
India ..... Although i did have a mentoring Guru there was no
formalized practice given from his side..... but his guidance was
invaluable to cut through some remaining illusion.....
