Re: Sleep Awareness?

Does anyone have any citations? We can experience the clear light all night, this mean we don't dream but do a atiyoga practice instead, but it is not easy as to push a button and make it occur.

Re: Sleep Awareness?

Yes. But you need pretty stable samadhi and non distracted unwavering lucidity in waking life to have a chance at night. That and having been introduced to the nature of your mind by a qualified teacher. Thankfully lucid dreaming is something anyone can learn to practice in the meantime. Are you sa...

Merit of Wishing to Ease Someone Else's Pain?

I remember reading something about the Buddha wishing to ease the pain of a headache of another person in a past life and the amount of merit generated by that thought....

Can someone please help me track down that information?

Thank you.
