You come to see the world only through the corrective lenses of your opinions and concepts and labels. Labels work fine for soup cans but are pretty lousy when it comes to making a guide-map for your life.Brian Robertson brings you a short, practical guide whether you are starting meditation for the first time or searching for understanding a different technique.Shamatha (Sanskrit) or Shinay (Tibetan) has been a part of Buddhist meditation practice for over 2500 years. The techniques are helpful for both Buddhist and non-Buddhists. Calm Abiding or Resting the Mind helps to see beyond our limiting concepts and labels we place on the world around us.
