The practice of Calm Abiding (Zhiné) is considered the foundation for developing and mastering all other, higher meditation practices in Tibetan Bön Buddhism. In this recording of a live webcast, Geshe Tenzin Wangyal Rinpoche gives instructions for three forms of Zhiné (forceful, natural, and ultimate) and explains how to deal with obstacles to your practice.
The ability to maintain focused attention and abide in clear, open awareness not only enables you to live more fully in the present, it also cultivates spiritual awakening. The practice of Zhiné develops the strong, stable attention and stillness necessary to overcome the continual movements of the mind. When you train yourself to abide naturally in openness, the healing powers of a focused mind are revealed.
