Awareness of Breathing

Dharma Discussion on Saturday 23 January 2016 (2)

meditation 3

Thay explained that our breathing is a bridge between our body and our mind. This is why we always place our awareness on our breathing at the start of our meditation, to allow our agitated or ‘jumping’ mind to calm and quiet down. Just as the water in a lake shows itself clearly when in perfect tranquility, our true mind reveals itself brightly when in perfect equanimity (upeksa).
