Many people do not really know who they are. We cling to superficial images of ourselves which rarely have anything to do with our true essence. The practice of meditation helps us to leave these surface images behind, allowing us to discover our true nature. The regular practice of mantra protects against the ordinary view, the habitual ways of seeing things. In this program, Tibetan scholar Glenn Mullin discusses the importance of experiencing emptiness and shares a few methods of reducing the apparent solidity of experiential phenomena within meditation practice. 1997. 95 minutes.
