Ripa Awareness Meditation


«Training to live well with anyone
means training to live well with any aspect of your mind»
Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche

“Ripa Awareness Meditation” is a simple and effective method that helps stabilize the mind, using the Shamatha technique or calm-abiding meditation; once the mind has settled, the application of Vipassana meditation tools allows the practitioner to gain access to more subtle aspects of his mind, thus allowing him a true exploration of the nature of phenomena and reality.

The method was conceived by the master of Tibetan Buddhism, Gyetrul Jigme Rinpoche to benefit his students around the world.

Beginners: RAM-Shamata

The practice of Shamata meditation aims at familiarizing participants with the meditation technique of Shamata, or calm-abiding meditation, a traditional Buddhist method that uses the breath as a support to calm the mind. 

The practice of this type of meditation results in a more calm, focused, and stable mind.

It is an ideal practice for those wishing to discover meditation for the first time.
