Breathing Meditation

This is very simple technique but it greatly awakens and refines our consciousness.

Watch carefully your breathing. Stop everything that you do at any point of your day or night, stop anything at any place and any condition and just observe your breath. Observe for 1-10 minutes and be totally aware.

Say, “What is the breath?

Who is breathing?

I thank the Buddha and

... Infinity for this Great Gift, I am forever Grateful.”

....

Next continue whatever you were doing before. It is truly an enlightening experience!

Try to do this whenever it comes to your mind, 2-3 times per day for seven days or more.

The secret is to practice it unexpectedly, without a specific program, in the midst of everyday life.

Buddha Breathing Technique

Sit in zazen.

Mentally or aloud say “The Buddha is now Breathing. I am the Breath of The Buddha. The Buddha Breathes in me. Buddha Breathing is now beginning…”

Start breathing consciously and as deep as you can. You can also focus on your crown, your forehead, your heart center, your solar plexus or your tanden (approximately one and a half inches below the navel and one and a half inches deep).

Thank the Buddha and send your Love and Gratitude to him and to All Sentient Beings.

Madness versus Silence Meditation

This is a very powerful technique and should be done in great care.

First Part:

Start acting madly. Scream and jump around. Act like a mad human being – explode, release, do anything crazy as intensely as you can. You can also dance or shake, say stupid things or scream and throw pillows around. Breathe heavily through your mouth. Act out as if you are in a movie acting out the role of explosive behaviours but care not to hurt your self – preferably do this in an empty space with loud dance music. Do this for 10-15 minutes. It is highly cathartic on all levels – You can also do Osho’s Dynamic Meditations. (they are in CD format – very easy to follow).

Second Part:

Sit in zazen and close your eyes. Relax and be silent. Act our as if you are a Bodhisattva, a Totally Enlightened and Awakened Being of Wisdom and Compassion. Empty your mind. Enjoy the Silence and relax at a deeper state and be aware. Enjoy the nothingness, simply suppose you are the Buddha. Think like the Buddha, be like the Buddha. Do this meditation for 15-30 minutes and then open your eyes to everyday life.

Do the above meditation for 7 days in a row.

Prajna Meditation: Emptiness

What is emptiness? What is the Void? Emptiness and void are everywhere, all around… Zen is empty, Zen is emptiness, the void is Zen…

Focus on anything. On yourself, another person, or any object. You can preferably use a book, a glass of water or even better a candle and a flame. You can also do this with a stone, a rock or with sand.

Relax.

Try to see beyond the object, beyond the form: Try to imagine the emptiness. The emptiness ‘behind’, the emptiness ‘beyond’, the emptiness ‘before’.

Do this for 10 minutes. Repeat for seven consecutive days.

Alternative Meditation:

Close your eyes and ask your self: “What is the Void? What is emptiness?”

Observe whatever comes to mind… Notice everything and relax. Repeat the question and wonder.

Enso Infinity Meditation

Practice 1:

Sit in zazen, sitting position on your feet and legs, and close your eyes.

Take some deep breaths and relax. Relax your mind and body. Release. Relax deeper. Breathe more deeply.

Visualize the Enso, the Circle, which is the Zen symbol of perfection, wholeness, totality and infinity.

Keep this visualisation as clear as possible for as much as you can.

Relax at a deeper state and be aware.

Open your eyes and drink some water. Notice everything in your life. Do not analyse, do not draw conclusions.

Live your day, live your life today.

Do the above meditation for 7 days in a row.

Practice 2:

Draw the Enso on a piece of paper and gaze at it.

Focus on it for at least 10 minutes.

Say “Zen Attunement to the Enso Perfection, Enso Totality, Enso Wholeness, Enso Infinity, Enso Divinity.”

Repeat several times.

Nirvana Meditation

Nirvana is the goal of Zen, the goal of Buddhism. It is the release into nothingness and into the All, the Infinite, the Absolute, the Transcendental Divine. Nirvana is Ultimate Liberation, Freedom and Blissful Eternal Life. Nirvana is the completion of one’s Dharma, Life Purpose and the transcendence of all desire and karma – law of rebirth, law of cause and effect.

Close your eyes and meditate for a few moments into these divine zen truths, taught by Gautama Buddha.

Take a deep breath, clear your mind and say to your mind “Nirvana Experience, Transcend this plane of illusion Now, Nirvana is the goal of All Life…”

Take a second deep breath, clear your emotions and heart and say to your heart / emotional center: “Nirvana Experience, Transcend this plane of illusion Now, Nirvana is the goal of All Life…”

Take a third deep breath, clear and awaken your spirit and say to your spirit “Nirvana Experience, Transcend this plane of illusion Now, Nirvana is the goal of All Life…”

Stay in this for 10-20 minutes and experience everything or nothing at all. Just note and observe. Be aware. Relax deeper and deeper, go higher and higher.

Rest. Take a bath / shower.

Repeat this enlightenment practice of nirvana for 7 days.

Tanden Meditation

Place your right palm on your tanden and your left palm on top of the right. The tanden is your energy center, the healing center of the body, your centering point, a star of power within. It is found approximately one and a half inches below the navel and one and a half inches inside.

Relax and center there. Bring your attention to this inner point of energy and power.

Mentally ask from this center to be fully awakened. See it, feel it becoming awakened, alive, radiant, conscious, full of light, energetically brilliant and powerful. See and feel as this is happening,

Breathe into it. Breathe deeper, more consciously, awaken it. Bring the in- breath into this brilliant point of power.

Do a total of 20 breaths.

Meditate on the energy of this center. Feel the energy, see it, experience it.

Mentally say: “The Great Healing Buddha of Brilliant Light is now bringing forth the Ultimate Tanden Empowerment…” three times.

Feel and see the energies. Relax.

Repeat for seven days this sacred healing empowerment given in great compassion by the Buddha.

Kensho (Enlightenment) Meditation

Do a short and simple massage on the top of your head for 10 minutes. Be gentle and loving.

Bring your hands in prayer position in front of the chest. Stay for 1 minute or for more. Visualise the Enso and say “Kensho” or “Enlightenment” three times.

Raise them above your head and keep your palms together in prayer position. Visualize the Enso and say “Kensho” or “Enlightenment” another three times. Stay for 1 minute.

Bring your hands back in prayer position in front of the chest. Again, after you visualise the Enso, say “Kensho” or “Enlightenment” another three times. Stay for 1 minute or more.

Smile throughout the whole procedure – you could also be laughing! – this is quite normal!

Be gentle and loving.

Repeat the procedure three times for a total of four.

Shikantaza: Meditation with no techniques.

Shikantaza 1:

Sit in meditation posture and close your eyes. Meditate with no visualisation, no thinking at all. Just relax. Just be. Just breathe and just be the no one, the no thing, the emptiness, for 15 minutes.

Shikantaza 2:

Imagine that there is not even one meditation technique in the world! There is nothing! You have to create your own spirituality and techniques and your own method to contact your self, the All, the void and the divine.

What would you do?

What would you think?

What processes, techniques, methods and meditations would you create and follow?

What would you say? Sing and chant? Visualise and affirm, pray and wish?

Start by sitting in meditation posture and do or think nothing at all.

Stay for 20-30 minutes. Repeat the next days.

The rest will follow.

Sand Meditation

Play with the sand! Create a pattern on the sand. Use a stick or your palm. Use your fingers.

Relax and focus on the pattern, figure, picture on the sand. It can be anything simple like a circle, a geometric pattern, a number, a line, a drawing or anything.

Meditate on this.

Breathe into it.

Think about its meaning. Watch any details. Watch any thoughts and feelings, any mental pictures.

Close your eyes and visualise it.

Then erase it.

Meditate and think about the meaning of the sand and its relationship to Reality.

What is the relationship between the sand and Zen? ...

Awareness: Colours and Sounds

You can focus on a colour or on a sound, any sound.

Relax.

Observe every detail and meditate on the colour or the sound.

What is the relationship of this object / colour /sound to the All? To the Nothing? To Zen? To You? to Buddha? To a great Bodhisattva?

What is this really? Really become one with it until there is no subject and no object, until you are one.

Do this for 15 minutes. Repeat for seven consecutive days.
