Whats the difference...

Postby Beautiful Breath » Mon Aug 06, 2012 9:01 am

Hi All,

What is the difference between the Theravadin practices of Vipassana and mindfulness of 'mind' and those in the Mahamudra tradition? Upon first impressions there is little differences apart maybe from cultural ones.

Thanks,

BB...

It might be more useful to ask, “What's the difference between practising mindfulness and talking about it.” :stirthepot:

The discriminating mind can be as big a hindrance as doubt. Too much paññā = not enough saddhā.
