GENERAL TIMETABLE

Translate This Page

There are many advantages to meditate according to a time table. But it is important to learn to meditate without a timetable as well. Meditation  should exist in the whole mind, from the time you wake up till you fall asleep. Though time periods are allocated for meditation sessions, it does not mean that meditation does not exist outside these time periods. If  you  understand  this timetable and get used to meditating according to it, you can meditate at any place.

'' Learn to forgive yourself too for all the mistakes you have made in the past, not holding onto these wounds by having guilt and remorsein relation to them; and also letting go of the wounds that have been created by others. Learn to accept yourself as you are,and learn to accept others as they are, without an image of how you or they should be.''  - Godwin Samararathne
