Meditation in Essence

Buddhist meditation quote "The essence of meditation practice is the confidence to simply be"
The Essence of Meditation Practice ..

Lama Shenpen Hookham describes the radical simplicity of the approach taken in Formless Meditation: “The essence of meditation practice is the confidence to simply be. With no sense that you have to do anything or change anything”.

Formless Meditation practice is rooted in the Dzogchen and Mahamudra meditation lineages of Tibetan Buddhism. It requires us to have the bravery to turn directly towards our experience, good or bad with radical acceptance.

Whether Formless practice is the first meditation practice that you learn or one that you come to after years of complex meditations, mantra recitation and visualisation practices, it is the one that cuts to the heart of the matter, the one that we always have to come back to.
