Reducing it down to basics


People can think that mindfulness meditation is complicated, but it’s actually very simple to describe.  The great thing is that anyone can start by practicing for just 5 minutes a day.  Even such a short break from the normal activity of the mind can make a big  difference. Paying attention, observing, on purpose, without judgment, to the gentle rhythm of our breathing, is a good place to start to develop this natural skill.


giving bare attention to whatever you happen to be experiencing at a particular moment,

is meditation.

Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche
