A pragmatic approach to the nature of mind will be demonstrated by Ven. Dr. Vimokkha. First the Venerable will show how to go inwards in the practice of Samatha (concentration) and Vipassana (insight) and thus to develop clear knowing and seeing into the nature of mind. With very simple explanation of Venerable’s techniques into the practice, one also can develop seeing into the nature of mind even in daily life’s work and activities
