In Mahayana Buddhism, the Bodhisattva practices the six perfections. The perfection of meditation is one of these six. Within the perfection of meditation, the practitioner practices calm abiding and insight meditation (shamatha and vipassana). This course focuses on the examination of one’s mind which is vipassana practice.
