A Meditation Schedule

If we genuinely wish to gain experience of Lamrim, the stages of the path to enlightenment, we should meditate every day.

On the first day we can meditate on our precious human life, on the second day we can meditate on death and impermanence, and so on, until we complete the whole cycle in twenty-one days.

Between sessions we should try to remain mindful of the instructions on subsequent practice.

Occasionally, when we have the opportunity we should do a retreat on Lamrim.

By practicing like this we use our whole life to further our experience of the stages of the path.
