Three Aspects of Concentration and the Simile of the Goldsmith: A Guided Meditation
2017-10-03 Three Aspects of Concentration and the Simile of the Goldsmith: A Guided Meditation 25:21
Shaila Catherine
In this meditation instruction Shaila Catherine shares a Discourse of the Buddha (AN 3:101) in which he employs the simile of a goldsmith to teach skillful ways to deepen concentration. From time to time meditators adjust the quality of attention to periodically increase calmness, intensify energetic effort, or observe with a relaxed and non-interfering quality of mindfulness. This meditation instruction offers practical meditation skills for strengthening concentration.
