2008-08-12 Talk Five: Samatha, Nibbana, and the Emptiness of Perception - The Relationship Between Concentration and Insight 60:37
As we learn to develop concentration in meditation, samatha (calm, tranquility) is also developed, and together these qualities become a powerful means for deep insight and a source of profound well-being. This progressive series of talks, guided meditations and instructions explores in some detail the art of concentration, primarily through different ways of working with the breath and the body to open to deeper and deeper levels of calmness, presence and joy.
