26 Mindfulness of Breathing, third phase

B. Alan Wallace, 10 Sep 2011

Mindfulness of Breathing - focusing on the sensations at the apertures of the nostrils. Here we have the full synergy of relaxation, stability and vividness. As we relax the breathing slows down and the sensations get subtler, everything gets more interesting so one has to pay more attention. At the same time we deactivate the sense of self as a controller of the breath, we are only the agent who controls attention.
Meditation starts at 7:42
