In this 10th episode I´m joined by Gil Fronsdal, a Norwegian-American teacher in the Insight Meditation Tradition. First we lay out some themes in regards to meditation practice in general, before we delve into the particular nuances of the Buddhist tradition itself. This includes the practice of loving-kindness (metta-bhavana), training in concentration (shamata), acquiring insight (vipassana) and finally the practice of mindfulness. Gil Fronsdal goes on to explain some of the differences between the more secular approach to mindfulness, and how it´s perceived and applied in the Buddhist tradition. Towards the end I ask if it´s necessary to actually become a Buddhist if you want to practice Buddhist meditation.
