SHARE YOUR WISDOM What’s the best meditation advice you ever received? What’s your FB–M ratio (social media to meditation per day) and how do you feel about it? Send your answer, photo, and location to email@example.com Meditation should be a “sweet experience,” something we look forward to, rather than another item on my to-do list. —Liz Mulligan-Ferry, Brooklyn, NY The best advice on meditation I ever got was given by Dudjom Rinpoche: “Awareness of nowness is the real Buddha.” —Vinzent Liebig, Freiburg, Germany That I can meditate anywhere... walking meditation, dishwashing meditation, etc. How powerful that teaching was! —Julie Tamler, Putney, Vermont By Thich Nhat Hanh: “Listen to the bell. Breathing in and out between the sound of the bell, concentrate deeply on your breathing. You calm your body. You calm your emotions. You stop all your thinking. You rest all yourself, your peace, your joy, your freedom. You are alive—to be alive is a wonder.” —Lyn Joyce, La Crescenta, California “Beyond the breath, beyond the heartbeat, and beyond the veil of awareness lies true understanding and wisdom.” —Rich Nason, Missoula, Montana It is not about clearing your head of thoughts, but about giving your mind something to focus on. Each time you recognize a thought has come up and redirect your attention back to your point of focus (e.g ., the breath), you are performing a mental bicep curl. The more bicep curls you do, the stronger your mind becomes. —Keri Badach, New York City The best advice I received was to think of the thoughts that arise as clouds passing by. Note them but don’t dwell on them. Let them drift away. —Carl Swallow, Rancho Mission Viejo, California Just do it. —Scott Kravis, Lambertville, New Jersey Pema and the Pema Chödrön Foundation support: THE BUDDHIST MONASTIC TRADITION Pema is dedicated to help guide and support her home monastery, Gampo Abbey, in Cape Breton, Nova Scotia.
