We held a Basic Meditaion Class for local people today, the teaching monk gave us valuable advice on techniques of how to prepare your mind before beginning meditation.
To achieve this, we start by letting our mind relax, making it free from worries and releasing it from any responsibilities you may have in your life which are bothering you.
The teaching monk then guided the meditation session for 45 minutes. After the session was complete, he gave us advice on how to improve the balance of our mind by living our daily lives in a more modest, simple way.
He gave an exammple of how many people can benefit by refraining from material possesions in this modern world.
The teaching monk also showed us the results of meditation experiences which were recorded from people all over the world as an inspiration for us to practise meditation and benefit from it.
The class was very successful,and created an atmosphere of joy and productivity. Everyone was
keen to learn more and is looking forward to the next session.
