The Dalai Lama's Teaching on Stages of Meditation

We were fortunate to see His Holiness the Dalai Lama in our hometown of Boston this week! On Tuesday, he gave an excellent teaching on Kamalashila's Stages of Meditation at MIT. You can watch the entire event online (fast forward to 1:03 for the teachings).
