According to the Buddha, the nature of our minds is awareness, clarity and emptiness. If we experience our minds in this way, we live in harmony with all of those around us, and experience great inner wisdom, clarity and compassion. But discovering and experiencing this inner essence can be difficult without a method or technique. Therefore the Buddha taught tranquility and insight meditation to discover and uncover this nature that we all possess. This weekend seminar teaches both the theory and practice of tranquility and insight meditation based on the Mahamudra meditation teachings of the Karma Kagyu tradition. All four of Lama Kathy's talks are lively and humorous and have extensive question and answer sessions. Four talks on one MP3 CD.
- MP3CD Recordings
MP3CDs look like ordinary CDs, but contain compressed audio files. While a regular audio CD holds a maximum of only 80 minutes of recorded audio, an identical-looking MP3CD can easily hold the audio files from an entire weekend or even week-long teaching. MP3CDs can be played in a computer and/or the audio files can be downloaded into an iPod or similar device. MP3CDs may also be played on a portable MP3CD player. Most ordinary CD players, such as the CD player in most older cars (roughly 2005 and earlier), will not play MP3CDs. Many but not all cars 2006 or later do have MP3-capable CD players. Any car or home stereo CD player that is capable of playing an MP3CD will have "MP3" or "MP3-WMA" clearly marked on the front of it.
The MP3CDs available for sale on this web site are all clearly labeled and packaged in a clear case. The audio files on them have proper ID3 tag information, which means that on a computer, iPod or similar device the audio files will display (and can be searched by) Album (Title of teaching), Song (Talk number within a teaching) and Artist (Teacher).
