Meditation is all the rage right now. We’re told how much happier we’d be if we simply became more mindful. But isn’t learning to meditate only achievable if you’re willing to transform into a Buddhist monk or yoga pants-wearing neo-hippie? The answer is no.
In this two-minute video, Tibetan Buddhist master Mingyur Rinpoche gives a down-to-earth and humorous explanation of how to meditate in just a few seconds, simply by telling your ‘monkey mind’ to breathe.
“We can meditate everywhere, anytime. Even three seconds, two seconds. As long as you don’t forget your breath, anything is okay.”
If you’re curious about meditation (or a bit of sceptic), this short-and-sweet video is well worth the watch.
