Meditation Instructions

A former member
Post #: 9
New to Buddhism? You can try meditation on your own. While it's helpful to have a teacher or to meditate with other people, it's easy to begin alone. Mostly, you just need to dedicate a bit of time in a space away from distractions. Just 5 or 10 minutes could open your mind to a new form of experience.

See the links for online basic meditation guides below. Techniques and traditions vary, but the intent is always the same--liberation of mind. The list starts with an FAQ followed by a classic meditation teaching direct from the Buddha. Additional teachings may offer words or aids that resonate with your individual needs or interests.

Relax, and if your mind wanders or you space out, just remember to begin again...
