Dharma discussion on Saturday 8 October 2016
Thay taught that awareness of breathing should not be limited to sitting meditation only. We should maintain awareness of our breathing in all our daily activities. Our body is able to breathe by itself, we do not need to force ourselves to breathe. And yet we often forget to notice this essential function of our body. We maintain awareness and mindfulness in the activity we are doing and not following whatever thoughts or feelings that arise, and at the same time aware of our in-breath and out-breath. In this way, we are said to be living in our true self.
