In DISCOVERING BUDDHISM Module 2 we explore the definition and purpose of meditation, how to sit, how to set up a meditation session, different meditation techniques, and how to deal with obstacles to meditation.
The purpose of meditation is to give us tools to create causes that reduce suffering, increase happiness. Meditation isn’t just to“check out”. It also presupposes that we are basically fundamentally good and workable.
This programme is designed for each session to correspond to a different kind of meditation. The approach is practical rather than lots of information because in the end you only get the benefit of meditation that you actually do.
The purpose of meditation, meditation on the breath
Mindfulness meditations; mindfulness of feelings and mindfulness of the mind
“Generating the mind in the aspect” meditations
Practical applications – bringing meditation into daily life
