  1. Just lovely!

    Thank you,

  2. “The Way home or face the Fire”, read the Book, much better answer!

  3. This was a great video. If anyone is interested, I am looking for friends to help test a new set of meditation exercises online. Please message me if you’d be willing to help out and I will send you the private link. Thanks!

  4. h***o! Have you heard about – Supreme Panic Magic (do a google search)? Ive heard some extraordinary things about it and my mate after many years Got rid the anxiety with it.

  5. Alohaaaa! Have you ever tried – Supreme Panic Magic (Have a quick look on google cant remember the place now)? Ive heard some super things about it and my auntie at last kissed good bye the panic problem with it.

  6. How ya doin! Have you tried – Supreme Panic Magic (just google it)? Ive heard some interesting things about it and my father at last eradicated the panic issue with it.

  7. Please keep eyes open when engaged in driving, working or walking meditation. If sitting, perhaps gently close eyes or do what helps bring inner stillness.

  8. you need both and do both, but at different times for different things, in the case of concentration-meditation for being relaxed-alert it is recommended to breath out and breath in.

  9. I’ve never really thought of it that way before. I was trying to see the breath starting from the out breath versus breathing in, and it was actually more difficult than I thought. You think of life beginning with an inhale, and ending with an exhale. Or perhaps that’s my Western conditioning? In reality, they’re inseparable and you need both.

  10. Do you have eyes open or closed in TNH’s tradition?

  11. Buddhists rumour about great benefit from meditation. I don’t know meditation but when I tress, tier, exhaust, I know seat or lay down, breath. Sometime, I fall to sleep. It come nature. Buddhist try to claim great buddhhist benefits. Fool. Western peopeole understand meaning of buddhhist chanting. It means pray to god Buddha. Buddha is buddhist god. He saves buddhists, give benefits to buddists’ chanting. Where do the chantings come from? Those chants make up by clergys.

  12. @bucetap****. Actually you are correct, it does matter the breathing order. The idea presented in this video is “Breathing In and then Breathing Out”. But this is in fact a technique for short term energy burst commonly taught in physical education cla****. It is the result of Westernization of physical education systems in Asia. In fact the correct traditional Buddhist breathing order for relaxed but alert mind is “Breathing Out and then Breathing In”. My lineage is Tiantai which includes Zen.

  13. Generally speaking I very much like Thich Nhat Hanh and his work of socially engaged buddhism. But I am doubting the breathing order stated here “Breathing In and then Breathing Out”. This is actually concept from Western standard physical education to promote muscle power and energy burst.

    In fact the tradition order is “Breathing Out and then Breathing In” for a relaxed but alert mind.

  14. the breathing in breathing out thing helped me relax and release my stress.. thank you for sharing this video.. 🙂

  15. Thank you for your presence when I asked for you to be here that we should breath together. It is now that all exists. In that grain of sand.

  16. I would also say that you shouldn’t worry too much about that. 😀 that is based on my own limited experience, but the most important thing is that you are meditating.

  17. Without the truth, there can be no real morality, justice, equality, success, freedom, love, security, peace, spirituality or even survival. Search “Truth Contest” in Google and click the 1st result, then open The Present and read what it says to learn the truth of life.

  18. interesting!

  19. That sucked.
