Sharing the techniques from the Meditation Sutra– the Sutra on the Contemplation of Infinite Light Buddha. Enjoy!
Find the Sutra here.
You should sit down, look in the western direction, and prepare your thought for a meditation on the sun; cause your mind to be firmly fixed so as to have a focused and unwavering perception of the sun. Gaze upon the image of the Sun about to set– when it looks like a suspended drum.
After you have clearly seen the sun, let that image remain fixed, whether your eyes be shut or open; this is the First Meditation– the ‘Perception of the Sun’.
~Amitabha Meditation Sutra
