On Sunday, June 11th, Lama Yeshe held a day long Meditation Retreat. There was meditation instruction and practice for students at any level. For beginners, the aim was to learn the basic meditation techniques, practice them, and gain enough familiarity to begin a daily home practice. For more advanced students, the focus was on how to be more skillful with obstacles that may arise during practice. These include how to work with boredom, agitation, sleepiness, etc. The real trick with meditation is to make it a regular part of your life. We have to be able to set aside the time and space for it, and have commitment to develop a daily habit. Like anything that we want to master, we need to extend the necessary effort. That is why we call it a meditation practice.
