Description
 
Understanding and having some experience of emptiness is an essential foundation for practicing vajrayana, mahamudra and dzogchen. Without developing certainty with respect to emptiness, it is hard to benefit from these practices. For this reason, Khenchen Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche and Dzogchen Ponlop Rinpoche emphasize analytical meditation on emptiness. These six talks by Nalandabodhi teacher Tyler Dewar were presented at the 16th Treasury of Knowledge retreat as a complement to mahamudra teachings presented by Ponlop Rinpoche. These talks are based on verses composed by Khenchen Tsültrim Gyamtso Rinpoche. In these verses, Rinpoche presents the view, meditation, conduct, and fruition for each of the five stages of analytical meditation on emptiness included in his book, Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness. These five stages are The Vehicle of the Hearers, Mind-Only, Middle-Way Autonomist, Middle-Way Consequence and Middle-Way Empty-of-Other. In his first talk, Tyler Dewar provides an overview of analytical meditation and considers techniques of analytical meditation. He then presents one session for each of the five stages in the verses, teaching the basic reasoning and logic for each stage and developing some practice tools for each stage. These six talks include both practice sessions and opportunities for questions. Tyler Dewar’s teachings are extremely accessible, clear, detailed and profound. They provide an excellent foundation for extended analytical meditation practice at home. Six talks on one MP3.
Features
  • 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).
