Four centuries ago there was a Tibetan master named the First Panchen Lama. He was one of the greatest meditators who ever lived. He learned the traps that can ruin our meditation, and he learned how to beat these traps. He described all this in a book called The Devil Debates an Angel, a very funny and profound argument between the Devil and an Angel, inside of one’s person’s head.

In America, we’re new at meditating, and we’re still making a lot of mistakes. We can learn to avoid these, and have a really great meditation practice, if we listen to the wisdom in this book. Using highlights from the meditation section of this spiritual classic which has never before been translated or taught in the west, we will go through the traps that can ruin our meditation, and learn how to meditate correctly, for peace, focus, and spiritual enlightenment.
