How is meditation in Buddhism different from other types of meditation?
UNIBUDS WEEKLY English Dhamma Talk
Speaker's Profile: Grahame White has been involved in Buddhist meditation practice for over 40 years. He began his study in England in 1969 before being ordained as a Buddhist monk for one year in BodhGaya, India in 1971. He took a primary role in the establishment of Vipassana meditation in the tradition of Mahasi Sayadaw in Australia and co-founded the Blue Mountains Insight Meditation Center outside Sydney. Now, Grahame leads introductory and day long courses in Sydney and regularly teaches longer intensive retreats in the US. He has also helped pioneer a workshop format that enhances the transfer of mindfulness from the formal sitting practice into daily life.

What are the benefits of meditation? Meditation helps to relax and settle our minds from our busy daily life. It also allows us to bring awareness to the present moment and to focus on the tasks at hand.
Why not spend a small part of our day to enjoy a little bit of peace and serenity. Take this excellent opportunity to practice, breathe and look within ourselves. For further enquiries, feel free to contact me! Hope to see you there!
