Meditator - Meditation Timer :D
« on: June 11, 2010, 02:22:40 PM »
I know it is best to meditate without using any timers and just sit for as long one feels or can but in my case when I meditate before going to work or just before bed time or before going to do something in the middle of the day and so fort, timer for me becomes necesserey as for some of you I feel  :)

I have found this timer for my iPhone called Meditator - Meditation Timer and I can tell you it is great  ;D

It is not just that you can set up the meditation bell (diferent bells, bowls, gongs) to start your session but also to finish your session! And not just that, one can also set up interval time in the middle if needed.

Very helpful tool indeed !

Helpful to what? The end of suffering?
It's just a catchy sounding gadget for your ego to drool over  :P

When I run meditation sessions at the University I do not want to be carrying a singing bowl around with me as well as my Zafu. One campus is half an hour way on public transport

I have a Nokia phone with good speakers. I have meditation MP3's for different duration meditations. All start with three gongs then 20, 30 or 40 minutes of silence then three more gongs.

Very simple, very effective and fits in the pocket. No app needed. Then again, I'm old skool.

I found a 1 hour meditation timer on the net and burned it on a CD. Too bad I couldn't fit more timers on the CD, an iPhone app seems very sensible to play a single sound after one hour of silence, lol.

Here are the meditation mp3's I use:

20, 30, 40 & 60 minutes. They are zipped as much smaller that way (~600K vs 30Mb - 80Mb unzipped)

Put them on your phone, laptop, iPod etc .... burn them on audio CD's .. whatever works.

Njoy,

Matthew
