Basic buddhist meditation instructions
« on: August 29, 2008, 04:56:13 PM »
From Dhammatube. Instructions and discussions of aspects of buddhist meditation, not specific to Vipassana but still very usefull.

It is a serie of 14 short videos in which a buddhist monk explains how to do it and how to cope with difficulties. The link here points to the first of the serie.

Is there an online shamatha/vipassana course that coincides with the shamatha instructions (by Matthew) on this Forum, that anyone would recommend?

Check videos by Ajahn Brahm and Thanissaro Bhikkhu.

Agree with Raushan. Also:

https://www.veoh.com/find/Tan%20Ajahn%20Jayasaro

From that link you can access the videos from Tan Ajahn Jayasaro, a student of Ajahn Brahm - these are quite good (the link posted higher up no longer works). Unfortunately a couple of important ones have gone .... aha! impermanence ....

It's only five days since you had the "Gotcha!" moment with Shamatha practice, so I would suggest time exploring it on the cushion is still your wisest investment efeatherly :)

Many thanks for your kindness! I'm sticking with it Matthew. I know I need time to explore and experience where I am.  Perhaps knowledge and background could help in my understanding, enrich and sustain my motivation. I'm aware to bring awareness back from the many thoughts. I hope to get more comfortable and the experience becomes more pleasant. I'm agitated, most everywhere.
