Brief meditation instructions
The purpose of meditation is personal transformation. The ‘you’ that goes in one side of the meditation experience is not the same ‘you’ that comes out the other side. Meditation changes your character by a process of sensitisation, by making you deeply aware of your own thoughts, words and deeds.
But don’t take our word for it – use the meditation instructions below and try it for yourself.

A wonderful introduction to meditation, Martine Batchelor was speaking at the English Buddhist Library in Seoul, Republic of Korea.
Starting with meditation as cultivation, she looks at the ethics of meditation, at the notion of non-grasping, goes on to examine creative engagement and finally in the third video she looks at meditation in daily life.
