Sunday Evening Sitting


June 8 / 5:30 PM - June 8 / 7:00 PM

Let go of any goal and simply sit...


If we have ambitions - even if our aim is enlightenment - then there is no meditation, because we are thinkingabout it, caving it, fantasizing, imagining things.  That is not meditation.  This is why an important characteristic of shamatha is to let go of any goal and simply sit for the sake of sitting.  We breathe in and out, and we just watch that.  Nothing else.
