    Duration: 58 minutes

    Loving Kindness

    Duration: 55 minutes

    This is a lecture on cultivating effortless loving kindness and compassion. One way to reveal your natural loving kindness is to make a series of affirmations with visualizations. Another way is to experience your body as porous energy and modulate that energy with the message of love. Thus insight into the impermanence of your senses can be used to spread your loving kindness throughout your body and your world.

    Meditating Through Fatigue

    Duration: 40 minutes

    When you get tired and sleepy it digs down into old material which takes you back to an early period associated with the initial formation of ego. There is an objective need (what the body actually requires) and a subjective need (the desire to avoid or have relief from certain unpleasant sensations). The subjective need can be transcended. Discusses a meditative approach for achieving this.

    On Buddhism: Shila, Samadhi and Prajna

    Duration: 58 minutes

    Buddhism is fond of using numerical categories as devices of memorization. The whole path can be conceived of in the Three Fold Training, probably the simplest of these divisions. Shinzen speaks on the concepts of Shila (precepts), the misunderstanding of Samadhi (concentration) and Prajña (wisdom). Delving back into pre-history and leaping forward into scientific, mathematical and psychological concepts, Shinzen demonstrates the complexities of these simple categories.
