Breath Awareness: The Rise and Fall of the Abdomen

Alan Wallace
Live from Phuket! show

Summary: This morning we went back to the valuable practice of settling the attention on the rise and fall of the abdomen, a "transitional" practice. The podcast starts with an introduction about struggles, the "casino of samsara," discipline, and counting in breath awareness practice. After the practice, there is a reflection on the reality of suffering. The picture is of our gompa, or teaching hall! It's part of a bunch of pictures that have been uploaded to Alan's facebook today. Here (on the website) is a fancy button in case you want to become a fan! (Or “Like” as they now call it):
