    Beginning Buddhist Meditation

    I was fortunate enough to attend some of Mingyur Rinpoche's teachings several years ago - and here he is talking about Buddhist meditation.

    An excellent short introduction to Buddhist meditation. If you follow this advise you don't really need any other meditation techniques. It is all about developing a different relationship with your thoughts and emotions rather than stilling them. You don't need techniques to 'bliss out' either. Bliss will come as something to observe but not stay with (unless you want to, now and again). I find bliss to be more of a hindrance in my practice, getting in the way of 'just sitting' with whatever is around me.

    Hi Aloka,

    This is very simple and straight forward. :)

    I have listend to a few teachings by Mingyur Rinpoche and I always find him to be an effective communicator.

    Many thanks.
