The power of presence: 3 simple ways to harness mindfulness
http://wld.mn/1dpl6Dr

"He was just driving, focusing on the vehicle, and the road ahead.

He was 100% present in that moment to his task- present and focused.

I resolved then that I wanted to develop this quality. And I discovered that mindfulness is achieved through meditation and the internal gardening of our thoughts."

Whether you call him Budai (Chinese), Hotei (Japanese), or Bố Đại (Vietnamese), this distinctive figure is a Chinese folkloric deity whose name means "Cloth Sack."

Bell and vajra set

The vajra represents the compassion of the Buddha, the masculine principle; and the bell represents wisdom, the female principle.

An important appeal: please respond!
http://wld.mn/1GmwcEj

We’re calling this our “Multitude of Hands” fundraiser in homage to Avalokiteshvara, a mythic figure representing compassion. Avalokitesvara is said to have 1,000 hands reaching out in order to help suffering beings. Compassion finds a way. Similarly, each page of our website and each blog post is like a hand reaching out to the world. We’d like to be be able to do that more effectively.

This isn’t just a cosmetic redesign, but a complete overhaul of how our site works, so that it will be easier to use—and appear very differently—on a smartphone, tablet, or desktop computer. With your support, we’ll be able to provide better support and encouragement to meditators all over the world, whatever device they’re using.

It’s urgent that we make this move now. Google, which many people use to find us, is going to start penalizing websites that don’t offer a good experience to mobile users—and right now we don’t.

We’re barely scraping by financially at the moment, and we need your help to be able to pull this off. We’ve already found a designer and in fact he’s already started work. The initial results are very promising indeed, and I’m looking forward to unveiling the final design when it’s ready—hopefully before the end of this month.

It would be wonderful if you could donate $100, $50, or even just $10 — whatever you can afford. You can make a donation using any of the links here: We’re calling this our “Multitude of Hands” fundraiser in homage to Avalokiteshvara, a mythic figure representing compassion.

Meditation optimizes adaptive behavior
http://wld.mn/1HnLOG5

"Even if preliminary, these results provide the first evidence that meditation instantly affects behavior and that this impact does not require practice. As such, our findings shed an interesting new light on the potential of meditation for optimizing adaptive behavior."

Abstract Buddha Statue
http://wld.mn/1emrmXw

This stylized Buddha image, in aluminum, represents an abstract form of the Buddha, and is reminiscent of the sculptures of the Romanian-born artist, Brâncuși.

This statue makes an intriguing and unique decorative or devotional focus for a room.

Meditation earning a place in health care
http://wld.mn/1EVfVAx

"It wasn’t so long ago that meditation was seen as something on the fringes of health care. But that is changing.

Science has taken a deeper interest and there have been some unlikely proponents who see it as a way to focus the mind in a world full of endless distractions."

Meditation MP3 - The 6 Elements (complete)
http://wld.mn/1uiIUvh

The Buddha taught the Six Element Practice as a way of challenging our assumptions of our own separateness and permanence. 

In this practice we reflect on the various "elements" that compose our being (solid matter, liquid, energy, gas, space, and consciousness itself) and see how each is a flow, rather than something static.
<p> The Six Element meditation practice is a profound contemplation on interconnectedness, impermanence, and insubstantiality. It's is an insight meditation from the Buddhist tradition, helping us to cultivate a profound state of equanimity, acceptance, peace, and serenity.</p>
