Ep 154: Surya Das – What is Mindfulness?

Welcome to the More Than Sound podcast. 

Lama Surya Das Offers an Invocation + His definition of Mindfulness

What is Mindfulness?

Hanuman Goleman asked leaders who are shaping the mindfulness movement to offer a more nuanced survey of the mindfulness landscape.

Lama Surya Das is one of the foremost meditation teachers and scholars of Western Buddhism, and one of the main interpreters of Tibetan Buddhism in the West. He’s the author of 13 books, including Awakening the Buddha Within: Tibetan Wisdom for the Modern World, and most recently Buddha Standard Time.

For Surya Das, mindfulness is the opposite of mindlessness. In this first conversation, he explains a mix of non-judgemental present awareness and insightfulness that he calls “meditation with benefits.”
