Dharmabyte: Exploring the Movement of the Mind as Wind

By Sadayasihi on Thu, 20 Aug, 2020 - 14:00

Kamalashila explores the nature of wind as energies moving around in the body as well as outside the body.

Kamalashila has spent a lot of his adult life exploring meditation - and this talk is a lovely little foray into the whole subject as a crucial aspect in life and practice, with special consideration given to reflection on the six elements.

From the talk entitled Simplicity given at Triratna (FWBO) Day, 2004.
