How do I meditate?
- Sit down. Sit still and upright. Close your eyes lightly. Sit relaxed but alert. Breathe calmly and regularly.
- You could listen to one of the songs below to guide you through a 1,2 or 3 minute meditation.
- It is recommended that you use the prayer-phrase MA-RA-NA-THA. Recite it as four syllables of equal length. Listen to it as you say it, gently but continuously.
- Do not think or imagine anything – spiritual or otherwise. If thoughts and images come, these are distractions at the time of meditation, try to put them out of your mind and focus on your breathing
