There’s a wonderful podcast available from B. Alan Wallace. It includes over 20 lectures on Shamatha, including guided instructions. This is a very generous offering as each podcast is packed with teaching and practice. A definite resource for anyone looking for a nice guide and introduction (perhaps even more than an intro, this is nearly a month’s work of daily listening material)! For anyone interested, please check it out:
- The podcasts appear to be taken down. Not sure if this is permanent or not. In the mean time here is the site for the full Spring 2010 retreat: “Live from Phuket!”
- The Wiki page on Shamatha.
