28th Oct 2018, Sunday - 10 am to 1 pm: Introduction to Nine-Round Breathing Meditation by Venerable Gyalten Rabten
This Sunday, come join us for a session of introduction to meditation, guided meditation practices on Scanning the Body and Nine-rounds breathing exercise.

The nine-round breathing exercise comes from the more esoteric collection of meditation practices contained in Buddhist tantra. It is a simple but profound method to clear up the energy channels in the body and thus make the mind more serviceable for meditation.

In Tantra, it is explained that there are subtle energies in the body known as the winds. The mind is said to accompany these winds, like a rider on the horse. If the winds are serviceable, the mind is serviceable.

Nine-round breathing is a way to bring balance to these winds in the body and thus balance to the mind. For us, it is a method to bring the mind to a "neutral" state in order to settle the mind for the meditation practice.

The session will be guided by Venerable Gyalten Rabten. Born and raised in Singapore, Venerable Rabten is one of our senior Teachers at CKSL from the Sera Jey Monastery in Bylakuppe (Karnataka).
