two goals

  • shamatha - having a continually calm mind independant of circumstances which allows you to practice single pointedly so the next step is possible
  • vipassana - recognizing the inherent emptiness in physical phenomon - empty of inherent identity
    • achieving a new level of pure awareness called rigpa
