Breath Awareness: The Rise and Fall of the Abdomen

B. Alan Wallace, 27 Apr 2010

This morning we went back to the valuable practice of settling the attention on the rise and fall of the abdomen, a “transitional” practice. The podcast starts with an introduction about struggles, the “casino of samsara,” discipline, and counting in breath awareness practice.
After the practice, there is a reflection on the reality of suffering.
