Content / Description

“Interest in the meditation object leads to one-pointedness, nothing else”. How to listen to a Dhamma talk. The universal language of the heart: the language of intentions. Problem of westerners is to look for results. Using “don't know” method when the mind constantly assumes this and that. Similarities between humans and chickens. Technique of investigation: questioning and not allowing/accepting any answer that pops up, leads to an empty mind, amazing experience similar to appana samadhi. “Everyone can do it, but you can't give up”. We don't want to question “life”, when someone does, it makes us restless. We cherish avijja the master of delusion.
