While looking for a dhamma talk on how to deal with difficult people, I found this:
http://www.dhammacenter.org/dhamma_talks/2010

I downloaded talk #34 on "avoiding fools, and seeking the wise." At around the 22:19 mark, following a very clear recitation of the precepts, I was surprised by a guided meditation on visualizing the white kasina. :) The instructions are very thorough, and cover a lot of important topics.

To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

- Ajahn Lee Dhammadharo


With mindfulness immersed in the body
well established, restrained
with regard to the six media of contact,
always centered, the monk
can know Unbinding for himself.

- Ud 3.5
