Vince: I think many people probably have heard of you or at least heard of the Karma Kagyu tradition which is your main practice lineage and you have had several teachers including your dad Tulku Urgyen Rinpoche, who is very well known, of course, amongst Titbeten Buddhist practitioners and you’ve practiced with several other well known teachers, and many years of practice and retreat and you started quite young, how old were you when you first got into this?
Vince: I was wondering if you could maybe share a little bit of that because it is so touching.
Mingyur: And I really want to join I asked his eminence … through my father because I thought maybe he may not except because I was so young, but he kindly accept and I joined into three year retreat but first year my panic got worse, more stronger you know? Mingyur: And especially with the group prayer, with the people,because sometime we use musical instruments for prayer and this noise would drive me crazy, and I would have to go out and one day I asked a question to myself, “Still I have 2 more years” and I said, “do you still want to spend two more years like this where you are unhappy or do you really want to apply meditation two year what I had been taught?” And I decide to apply. Vince: While I was reading Joyful Wisdom I also got the sense of how accessible and how useful you present the teachings.
The important thing is that we have love, compassion, joy, wisdom, capability, everything exists within us.
Vince: Would you suggest people find, or go deeper in a particular tradition at some point, or is it ok to continue with something simple? Vince: I mean I hear joy in the Buddhist teachings but I don’t often meet teachers that really emphasize that. Vince: I’m just wondering, why is it that people, when they first start looking for happiness think that they’re going to find it in some sort of configuration of experience that’s going to… it’s such a constant assumption of people.
So if you see joy within you and that also good for your life, good for your activity, good for your job, good for your relationship with others, that influence the outer material joy; the cause of the joy you know. Vince: I’m imagining that there are certain levels of joy that may seem very stable… maybe joy associated with states of consciousness, or meditative awareness. Vince: And he brought in, at some point I heard lots of different meditators who’d spent something like 10 to 50,000 hours doing formal practice. And second important is, one of the best of way to change your brain activity function from negative to positive is, apply meditation. Vince: Is there anything else that you want to say to an audience that listens to a show called Buddhist Geeks, that you think could be of value? Mingyur: Yeah, I think nowadays we are facing big problem in the world, recession, global financial crisis.
Imogen O’Rorke focused on her meditation practice during a weekend at Vajrasana in Suffolk. If you’ve ever had an inkling that meditation could be the way forward for a calmer, more integrated life then this introductory retreat is an excellent way to take your practice to the next level. Run by the Triratna Buddhist Order but open to everyone of any faith or walk of life, the weekend begins at 7.30pm on a Friday when guests arrive, are introduced to  the meditation practices and have a chance to meet each other over a vegan supper. Over the course of the weekend (which ends at 3pm on the Sunday) it’s nothing short of miraculous to see people’s faces opening up and blossoming as they start to reap the benefits of meditating for around four hours a day.
After a vegetarian lunch (a veritable bean feast) we were free to explore the grounds and the surrounding countryside or just relax, chat or read before returning at 4pm for communication exercises in pairs which involved staring deep into another’s eyes for two minutes (it made me wonder if artist Marina Abramovic who wowed crowds with her performance The Artist is Present recently had ever flirted with Buddhism) and then a simple question and response exercise repeated ad nauseam for what purpose no one quite knew. On Day Two we were taught the Metta Bhavana, a meditation to cultivate compassion or ‘loving kindness’.
The Triratna organisation are keen to emphasise the fact that you do not have to be a Buddhist to benefit from the meditation practices and exercises (the dharma is fundamentally a philosophy not a religion).
Clearly Triratna (which translates as Three Jewels) are keen to encourage people to learn about the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha (community life). Please note, Vajrasana is in the middle of a refurb and London Buddhist Centre retreats will be held at Kench Hill Centre in Kent until September 2015. Queen of Retreats is the leading independent travel website that helps you sift through the healthy holiday hype, set up by Times journalist and retreat expert Caroline Sylger Jones. All the material you find on this site has been meticulously researched and written by a hand-picked team of professional journalists with a passion for retreating.
First (of six) in a series of videos on how to practice meditation without the requirement of religious dogma or spiritual mumbo-jumbo. I went to a private military themed academy for my high school where I learned a lot of discipline. That is done by extending each foot forward 1 step in slow mo while keeping your foot level with the ground as it moves.
When I learned this it was an exercise in concentration, balance and general movement which focuses your attention inward.
Now that I think more…every time I got in trouble I had to stand at attention for hours or was put into physical labor which could last days or at least until you puked (for more minor offences).
Although I didn’t view it as such this was meditation too and you had hours and hours to go over what had happened.


He starts off by telling us about how he got into formal Buddhist practice, at the tender age of 9.
I learnt meditation before that, when I was 8 years old but it’s not really the formal way, but when I was 9 years old I really wanted to study meditation from my Father but I was shy to ask him directly I approached my Mother to ask him to teach me meditation. Well I started reading your newest book Joyful Wisdom I was really struck by some of the stories of your earliest time with meditation and how difficult it actually was for you. I think it developed with me around 7 years old, I had fear for natural disasters and for strangers, many things, but sometimes fear without reason just my heart thumping and sweating and I am searching for some solution. Of course it’s the result from a few years practice, but in that time it only took three years and it was totally gone. Some people told me that you’ve been in retreat so long maybe your health is not good you have to check with a doctor. Buddha said a teacher is like a flower, and Dharma is like nectar in the flower, and you are like bees. Kind of going off of that, one thing you talk a lot about, and obviously it’s in the title of both the books you’ve written, is joy. Although we have a lot of problem, but everybody looking for happiness, everybody wanting to free from suffering. That is actually because of the joy, which is existing within in you and cause to look for the joy. I’m wondering how one works with more subtle types of joy, that aren’t quite the unconditional joy that you’re talking. So the last thing I wanted to talk about is the scientific studies that you’ve participated in with Dr.
No, no, no they didn’t say I’m crazy, but I’ve been there three times and they also check with a lot of senior mediators and what they call in the brain, what they call left prefrontal lobe. And they also tested with it beginners, who had no idea about meditation do you know is student. And third important point is, that positive change in your brain, is good for your physical body, the immune system. As a regular at the London Buddhist Centre in Bethnal Green, I wasn’t strictly a beginner, but I always leap at the chance to spend a weekend at the London Buddhist Centres’s lovely retreat centre Vajrasana in the Suffolk countryside to refresh my practice and calm my mind. Typically people are worn-out and closed-down after a busy week and stare blank-eyed during the intro talk, wondering, I suspect, if they wouldn’t be better off down the pub.
The day continues with a third sitting at 10.30am and exercises on how to balance effort in meditation by adopting a ‘hawk-like’ focus, followed by a ‘goat-like’ defocusing. The guests responded to them in different ways: some found them ‘deeply moving’, others ‘self indulgent’. This is done in five stages beginning with a focus on generating compassion and kindness for yourself, progressing to generating positive feelings towards a good friend, a neutral person, someone you’re experiencing difficulty with and finally expanding the goodwill to include all of humanity. There were only a handful who defined themselves as Buddhists on the weekend, including the team members.
After all, Buddhists are on a mission to reduce human suffering, which they see as inseparable from receiving the practice. This video discusses both the meaning of meditation and the foundations of meditation practice. He also shares some of his initial challenges with anxiety, and how he was able to work with it on his first 3-year retreat. Maybe jog for half an hour, and you finish your physical exercise and you’re pretty happy and you use nice chair in garden at your home with a big sigh [sigh]. Increased, activity’s very increased and then all the different part of brain work together what they call gamma synchronize, gamma frequency. They are asked to meditate everyday, one hour for eight weeks, and they develop this lateral prefrontal lobe within ten to fifteen percent. And there are so many ongoing studies about good for stress deductions, high blood pressure and heart, many things, you know. Panic can set in when people are asked to turn off their mobile phones or iPads (there’s a land line for family emergencies). In practice these are guided meditations in four stages which last around 20 minutes, starting with counting the breath and gradually focusing the concentration in to a single point.
We were also introduced to some of the obstacles which prevent mindfulness in life or meditation such as anxiety and restlessness, doubt and indecision, greed and aversion (states of mind we’re all familiar with) and given techniques for managing them. Another suggested it was about developing tolerance for other people’s manners or opinions.


The teacher talked about the importance of grounding your practice in how you are feeling at the moment or “what is going on in the background” which I found a useful tool for connecting. A couple of the guests felt uncomfortable about taking part in the rituals over the weekend which included a short ‘Saluting the Shrine’ and a ceremony to celebrate the Buddha, but most people happily joined in. Rinpoche also shares some suggestions for meditators who are fairly new to the path, suggesting that they focus on 1) Wisdom & 2) Method.
If this teacher is authentic, you can receive from any teacher and important is to practice the Dharma. Fundamental joy or the final destination of the joy is unchangeable joy, boundless joy, joy full of wisdom, love, and compassion and enlightened activity, which can help to boundless sentient beings. The Buddha said: If there’s bird’s nest and some time mother bird flies away, although she flew very far, she don’t think she is going to stay there. If you are looking joy from outside material, outside circumstances, then your joy become like stock market, you know; up and down. Ok, now meditate compassion.” And it’s like one hour, and more than one hour, something like more than one and a half hours, I cannot move. Same like, what I did with my panic, I tried to make friends with my panic, and so maybe you try make friends with this problem. The fear of being incommunicado is an absurd side effect of modern life – but here is where the real communication begins. Winding up the day, it was lights out at 10.30pm but no one seemed to mind (possibly because we were in silence until after breakfast).
In addition to that he speaks about what makes a good teacher and whether or not it is vital to practice in a particular lineage.
People asked me to go to swim, and I went to a big Olympic-sized swimming pool and tried to swim, and I had no success.
And then they send terrible noise like baby crying, girl screaming, lot of noise, different noise and I have to meditate like that. You might think OK, if I lost everything, how I can make friends with this problem, but still you can do. That’s why main importance here is, if you recognize the joy which is developed within you, none depend on the outside circumstances. But now they said, “No, you can change and brain has unlimited capability to change.” It organizes itself and change the cells into different things. Of course, if you have the great unchangeable joy, you only achieve and you become full enlightenment. Maybe sometime you will find, “Oh I have to belong to this way.” It can belong to that way.
You can learn about the nature of phenomena and the nature of your life, impermanence, the changing of conditions. For example, if the stock market going down, if you cry and pull your hairs, beat your chest, doesn’t make stock market one dollar go up. I thought, “wait a minute, I know how to swim.” When I was young I grew up in the Himalayan Mountains. I don’t know there’s a main some power cannot be function so it has to be cold, something like that.
I don’t know the detail… And there’s kind of a tongue coming out, tongue you know coming out and I have to lie down on that and they give me like earphones. This why, believe in your self, still you have a capability, still you have a wisdom, love, and power and strength. My friend was very surprised and asked how come I could not swim 5 minutes before and now I can swim, and I told him that now I remember how to swim.
And they tied my head and they put me in what they call, by god something chews in my mouth and screw up everything machine. The point here is that even though you have the capability to swim, you do not recognize that capability then you cannot swim.
