Connecting to the Source
Duration: 56 minutes
Shinzen talks about the self and oneness. He explains some sensitizing techniques that either focus on or away from the self, but that develop concentration while yielding insight and purification. He offers that although it isn’t ‘bad’ to have a sense of self arising; what is bad is not knowing how the sense of self arises, or how the sense of oneness arises. It’s the difference between ‘samadhi with a seed’ or ‘samadhi without a seed’.
