Access selected teachings relevant to analytical meditation from The Gelek Rimpoche Archive for free

For context and background of the analytical meditation teachings, here is a link to selected teachings from The Gelek Rimpoche Archive that Gelek Rimpoche held in Ann Arbor, Michigan in 1992. You should also note the Archive contains many other teachings Gelek Rimpoche gave over the years but we think this is a good one to start with.
