Meditation practice and instruction play a central role in Shambhala Buddhism. In more than 170 centers around the world Shambhala welcomes anyone interested in learning to meditate. Although one can find the essential techniques written down in many places, meditation remains essentially an oral tradition, and individual personal instruction is important.
Meditation is a natural state of the human mind—at rest, open, alert. The basic meditation technique predates all religious traditions, though it is used in one way or another by each of them. Undertaken as a steady practice, meditation allows the mind to relax and settle. It encourages our inherent qualities of stability, clarity and mental strength to emerge.
