The Liberating Practice of Looking and Not Finding, describes a traditional Buddhist meditative practice of exploring mind and its world, often referred to as “analytical meditation”. These teachings were first introduced by the renowned 2nd century Indian practitioner, Nagarjuna. These investigations serve to interrupt our misconception that things (from our thoughts and emotions to outer objects) intrinsically possess the characteristics we project on to them. This insight is crucial because the very misconception that things are limited to how we think or feel about them is what fuels reactive mind, social discord, and mental anguish.
These teachings have personally “rocked my world.” As I travel and share these uniquely powerful methods, I am delighted to see how easily people take to them. The contemporary mind is always looking for a way to bring clarity to spirituality in simple and practical ways. These contemplations deliver—and more!
