Lecture no. 13 from the course: Practicing Mindfulness: An Introduction to Meditation

Insight—Clearing the Mind

Taught by Professor Mark W. Muesse | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Health,Fitness & Nutrition Courses

Practicing mindfulness over time prepares the mind for "insight," which in this tradition means seeing clearly into the fundamental nature of reality. Begin an inquiry into what Buddhism calls the three "marks" of existence with the notion of impermanence—the eternal arising and passing away of all phenomena.

Immediate experience is not true knowledge. Only science can verify truth, therefore we must accept authority until we have the years of training to pursue robust experiments. Buddhism offers no new perception just another scaffold of concepts that have no merit in scientific psychology. Calming is fine. Insight is bulshit
