Day 3 – 8-hour meditation on Diamond Mind

Before Lama Ole left for Dhagpo in France to welcome Gyalwa Karmapa to Europe and accompany him to the EC, he started the first of two 8-hour meditations this year together with Sherab Gyaltsen Rinpoche.

As an introduction and inspiration for the following meditation session over 8 hours, Rinpoche explained the practice and the 100 syllable mantra of Diamond Mind (Skt. Vajrasattva, Tib. Dorje Sempa). The meditation practice on Diamond Mind purifies karmic imprints left by former harmful thoughts, words and actions in our subconscious. Is the second of the Four Foundational Practices (Tib. Ngöndro), also known as the preliminary practices of the Great Seal (Skt. Mahamudra). They lay the basis for realizing the true nature of mind. Involving many repetitions, they create strong positive imprints, making one unshakeable.

The third day of the course was rounded of with a panel of Diamond Way teachers from Italy, Australia and Russia.
