Having lived in retreat within the halls of an Aikido dojo, Aikido Shobukan Dojo in Washington DC for nearly a decade, and having studied, practiced, and threaded a variety of worlds, after a post dojo walkabout, an opportunity has arisen through deep meditation. These experiences and the sharing of, have received the grace and request, “you must share this with the others,” in historical audiences with Kunzig Shamar Rinpoche, the Red Hat Lama of Karma Kagyu, and thus having received the name Karma Samten Chophel, which translates to “Unceasing Evergrowing Meditation”, these sessions will be opened to the world.
These meditation sessions will touch on direct perception of elemental properties sans conceptualization for the purpose of high torque renunciation. Supporting concepts will be application, sustainment, meditative stabilization, and the removing of supports of these non-conceptual elemental properties resulting in remaining clear awareness accompanied by potential for penetrative insight.
Supporting materials are available in Dingha Nikaya 22; Majjhima Nikaya 10, 28, 62, 140, and a variety of suttas and commentaries of Mahayana, Vajrayana, and Yoga schools. These elements are recurring themes, and are helpful for any practitioner of arts and especially helmet wearers (Budoka).
