Can your mind walk the dog?

bulldog2Can your mind walk the dog / Can a flying bird leave footprints?

Open to the local English-speaking community since 2005, we (Vajrayana Buddhism Association) offer meditation classes following the Nyingma Tibetan Buddhist teachings. We begin by introducing a seated meditation in which the participants are asked to keep their eyes open (same goes with all their senses). Because in real life, it is like walking the dog or riding a bike, you do not ignore your surroundings or suppress your instincts. Slowly, step-by-step, one can become at ease, even when actively engaging in challenging situations. This natural ability to be at ease is like the sun and its warmth that are never departed from the Earth.
