    Ep. 105 – Cultivating Loving Thought

    Ep. 105 – Cultivating Loving Thought

    From the infamous 1974 Naropa summer sessions, Joseph Goldstein answers audience questions on love, wisdom, practice, perspective, metta, impermanence, silence, and cultivating loving thought.

    In this vintage July 5th, 1974 dharma talk from Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche's Naropa University, nestled in the mountains in beautiful Boulder, Colorado, a young Joseph Goldstein shares meditation instructions for the Yogas of the Bhagavad Gita course he was invited to teach alongside Ram Dass during the Naropa grand opening summer sessions. Having first met and impressed Ram Dass with his deep practice and wisdom cultivation in Bodh Gaya in the early 1970's, this invitation and opportunity would open the door for Joseph's life path of teaching meditation and mindfulness.

Thank you very much

I can’t express the gratefulness in my heart for your thoughtful, grounded, compassionate, wise and awakening teaching and explanations. After groping in the dark for over 50years, I am so beyond grateful to know I am seeing the crack of light, and I am going to follow it.
