In previous collections of Ajahn Lee’s talks, the main focus has been on technique. Here the focus is more on attitudes to bring to the practice of concentration. As he once said, the three trainings are like posts supporting a bridge over a river. The posts on the near shore and far—virtue and discernment—are not that hard to set in place, for they lie in shallow water away from the main current of the river. The posts in the middle of the river — concentration — are the ones requiring special effort, and so they need to be treated in depth.
