Meditation, Practice And The Path / Re: Do you encounter this?

Hi Matthew,


Appreciate for the long and mindful reply. I am having issue with my eyes so it is a challenge for me to quote and reply on my mobile. I do not have a PC here so do bear with me here.

《《《《《It seems that you are simply clinging to things you identify with inappropriately... 》》》

Perhap, but in these episodes the observing is that the anger arises very quick and hot. Its like way too sensitive to remarks- very reactive. Not on every occasions but it is disturbing.

I have the same understandings for the rest of your reply so i do not have any further questions.

Regards

Hey guys I started to getting into meditating because someone told me I should try it out. I am very stressed during tests and exams. Please let me know what I should do so that I am not so stressed. Thank you

Meditation is useful in that it can de-stress you. On the other hand it depends why you are stressed during tests. I found that my lack of memory recall was stressing me, so I studied memory techniques. They solved the problem and made tests enjoyable. I still meditated though.

I've struggled with poor memory and test taking as well; could you elaborate on what techniques helped you?

Hi Prabha,

Not personally. Some friends have done 3 year retreats in Tibetan tradition. I would tend towards Thai Forest tradition perhaps .. though I question that now since Ajahn Brahm cut ties with them over the ordination of women. It was all a bit messy.

Good luck with your search.

If you live in India, some of the Goenka centres might provide such settings. You could get in touch with them.
I am not from India. Ok I will ask, thank you.

Regarding 'experience of 3 years of meditation', do you mean a three year retreat? You are unlikely to find such a retreat outside of a Buddhist community with a specific view of the Dhamma.

Yes 3 years reatreat, of course in Buddist community. I find some info about it...but more curios if anyone did it...

Hello Prabha,

You might find something suitable by looking at 'intentional communities'. These come in many types such as ecovillages, communes, spiritually based groups, etc etc. There is an international association with a searchable directory here: https://www.ic.org/

I taught university students and staff meditation to reduce study and workplace stress using this method:

https://www.vipassanaforum.net/forum/index.php?page=2

20 minutes twice a day, or 30 minutes once a day, as a minimum, is a good guide to see results. You can do this practice whilst commuting on the bus or train, at home, or wherever. It's good to be creative about finding a regular time, though perhaps the best results come from sitting in the morning after you shower, and in the evening half way between supper and bedtime.

Meditation, Practice And The Path / Remote place for meditation

Hello everyone :)
I'm new to this group, I speak worse English, so I apologize for the mistakes. I see that there are a lot of meditators here, different groups, so I might take the opportunity to ask.
Does anyone know any remote place for meditation?
It would be good if this was a small group that is not a community with devoted meditators and a teacher. Really sincere seekers of truth, without all the clutter of religion, even if it is faith, organization, even if it is an organization, the rules, ... Um .... the dream of every meditator.  :angel:
Also, does anyone have the experience of 3 years of meditation? Please for more information on this.
Metta :)
