Breath Awareness: “Classic” Practice

B. Alan Wallace, 28 Apr 2010

This morning we had a 4 minuteintroduction on achieving Shamatha with breath awareness (and the acquired sign), followed by a classic, old school practice as taught by Buddhaghosa and practiced for millenia.
This practice should be at the bottom of the food pyramid!
Afterwards Alan explains some tips to slip back into meditation sessions with less transition from our “ordinary” state. Enjoy!
