Hi everyone, welcome to The Enthusiastic Buddhist. Today I'm going to be leading you through a simple 10 minute guided meditation on your breath. This technique is what is most commonly taught as a mindfulness breathing exercise for those who are interested in the practice of mindfulness. In Buddhism, this breathing meditation is usually referred to as Shamatha meditation or Calm Abiding Meditation. Because our minds are generally so busy, we need to quieten our minds down and make them more concentrated before we can do proper insight meditation. Insight meditation is a meditation done to inquire into the true nature of ourselves and it leads to personal freedom. But in the context of practicing mindfulness, this breathing meditation is extremely helpful for strengthening our quality of mindfulness and awareness, so that we can continue to practice mindfulness right throughout our day and derive all the great benefits that come from practicing mindfulness.
