Time, Training, and Meditation - 25jan23

Congratulations! You’ve done the math and figured out that you have one hundred and twenty minuets in your daily time budget to “spend” on meditation. But how are you going to divide it? Any student of Jhana meditation will tell you there is no substitute for a long meditation session if you really wanna go deep.

However Tibetan lamas extol the value of practicing four times per day while on retreat, and many Japanese roshis recommend that their lay students practice once every twelve hours. But sixty minuets (twice daily) could sound daunting!

Here’s a trick. The first week meditate for only five minutes, every twelve hours, for seven consecutive days. Once you’ve gotten comfortable with that bump the duration of each session by an additional five minutes, every week. And by the end of the thirteenth week, you could meditate like a Jedi.

Let us conclude

with a simple

call to action

In the Tibetan tradition Lamas are supported

not by monasteries but by students

as such the production of these livestreams,

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
