Meditation by candlelight

Yes, there was a power cut somewhere and the class was sitting with candlelight only – but no problem, you can use a candle as the object of mindfulness meditation.  It’s like giving your mind just one toy to play with, and in this instance, the one toy is a candle.  You can also use a flower, a crystal, or an image of a buddha.

And during the week, I found a video clip about Appearance and Essence of Mind, which is a good refresher from last week’s class.  Try to watch this clip now, as it’s on the blog page and will change soon.  Post a comment if you can’t find it later and we’ll look for another link for you.
