Buddhist Meditation: Calm Abiding, Insight, and Kindness

REL613 Buddhist Meditation: Calm Abiding, Insight, and Kindness (1.5 Credits) Graduate Meditation practice is an essential aspect of Buddhist training, providing methods for the direct experience of both our intrinsic wakefulness and the habitual patterns that generate and reinforce suffering. Meditation and study skillfully joined form the "two wings of the bird" of Buddhist training; if either is missing; the bird is unable to fly. This course introduces views and practices of ?amatha, vipa?yan?, and loving kindness meditation, emphasizing methods drawn from the Therav?da, Zen, and Tibetan traditions. The course format combines daily talks and meditation practice, with alternating days of discussion groups.
