Meditation means to make the mind peaceful in order to let wisdom arise. This requires that we practise with body and mind in order to see and know the sense impressions of form, sound, taste, smell, touch and mental formations. To put it shortly, it’s just a matter of happiness and unhappiness. Happiness is pleasant feeling in the mind, unhappiness is just unpleasant feeling. The Buddha taught to separate this happiness and unhappiness from the mind. The mind is that which knows. Feeling is the characteristic of happiness or unhappiness, like or dislike. When the mind indulges in these things we say that it clings to or takes that happiness and unhappiness to be worthy of holding. That clinging is an action of mind, that happiness or unhappiness is feeling.

BANG! @southernvangard#radio presents the M.A.V. interview session! It goes without saying that upstate NY is running this real rap shit right now. - yeah we said it, and stand by it. We continue to peel back those layers this week with Rochester’s own M.A.V., an MC who is a member of Da Cloth, a dense crew that includes Rigz, Mooch and Rob Gates to name a few. Maverick has the stoved turned up with his solo work as of late - you might remember we WORLD PREMIERED his “Angelz & Demonz” EP with Hobgoblin in Episode 200, and more recently WORLD PREMIERED his upcoming EP with Cotola, “Dust 2 Dust,” which drops very soon. We get the scoop on how the new EP came together, how Cotola’s soundscapes helped shape the lyrical content and the supporting cast brought in to assist in telling the story - Brown Bag Money’s own Daniel Son & Hempstead powerhouse Smoovth. Like last week’s interview with G4 Jag, this conversation gets very personal as M.A.V. breaks down the critical role his grandparent’s played in his life, and how building with elders is crucial to navigating life. We damn near Oprah status with this underground rap shit y’all - so press play, buckle up and soak up that GAME ‘cause it’s ALWAYS that #SmithsonianGrade#TwiceAWeek#WeAreTheGard // southernvangard.com // @southernvangard on #applepodcasts#stitcherradio#soundcloud#mixcloud#youtube // #hiphop#rap#undergroundhiphop#boombap#DJ#mix#interview#podcast#ATL#WORLDWIDE#RIPCOMBATJACK
