Dharma discussion on Saturday 24 September 2016 (1)
Thay pointed out that we can remain in quietude despite meditating in a noisy environment. The mind that pursues the external sounds is not our true mind. Like a non-participating observer, we just allow the external sounds to ‘flow’ past us while we maintain looking inward (refer to earlier post on Inward Contemplation) in our meditation.
