Progressive Stages of Meditation on Emptiness
by Ven. Khenpo Tsultrim Gyamtso Rinpoche.
The Tibetan term 'stong nyid sgom rim' means something like 'progressive stages of meditation on emptiness'. The idea of a series of meditation practices on a particular aspect of the Buddha's teachings is that by beginning with one's first rather coarse common-sense understanding, one progress through increasingly subtle and more refined stages until one arrives at complete and perfect understanding. Each stage in the process prepares the mind for the next in so far as each step is fully integrated into one's understanding through the meditation process.
