Meditations by Jinananda

I’ve finally got around to editing some new meditations by my friend, the excellent meditation teacher Jinananda.

I first encountered him at the West London Buddhist Centre in 2007, when my doctor recommended that I try meditation to help with a bout of insomnia I was having at the time.

I have found meditating to be beneficial ever since, and would really recommend anyone to give it a go. You need really do nothing more than sit comfortably and listen for half an hour.

If you would like to download a copy of any of them to put on your own mp3 player, simply click the down arrow just to the right of the sound waveform.

This first meditation is for absolute beginners, and is designed to make you more aware of the sensations in your body:

 

The second is a mindfulness meditation called the mindfulness of breathing, which is one of the most popular meditations you will find. I listen to this several times a week, usually, although this is a completely new recording:

 

The third is called the metta bhavana, and it is sometimes known as a ‘kindly awareness’ meditation. I think it is particularly powerful, and also listen to this on a regular basis:

I am grateful to Jinananda for allowing me to share these.  If you have any questions, please leave a comment below.

And if you would like to learn more, I would recommend anyone to visit the West London Buddhist Centre, where there are regular drop-in classes at lunchtimes and on Saturday mornings.  If you live far away though, I’m sure you’ll find someone doing similar things in your area, if you look around.
