This episode of the Maitripa College Podcast, “Balancing the Mind in Meditation,” begins with an eloquent explanation of joyful effort. Rinpoche proceeds to guide us on a meditation journey analogous to the balancing act of a pilot flying a plane while keeping her eye on the horizon. Enjoy this rare and essential teaching about how to maintain an uplifted mind while facing the ups and downs of the everyday world.
