Meditation with Bhikkhu Dhammadipa
“Doing your best means never stop trying.”
The Children eagerly waited for the arrival of a Monk from South Korea on 06 December 2022 in the school auditorium. He is the Chairman of the Korea-India Friendship Relation Association. Yoga and meditation have positive effects on the brain. He enlightened the children that there were not five but six sense organs. The sixth one, which was the mind, was the most important part of our body. Monk Bhikkhu suggested that ‘My Breath and I' is the first step of Anapana meditation that was demonstrated and practiced by the students. Anapana means observation of natural, normal respiration, as it comes in and as it goes out. It is an easy to learn, objective and scientific technique that helps develop concentration of the mind. Short exercises based on Anapana techniques were a great success, the teachers and students also participated in silent & walking meditation. Buddhists have practiced this type of meditation, also called unguided meditation, for more than 2,500 years.
During his short visit, he shared three Powerful Life Lessons with our students and teachers .
Happiness comes from within.
We must be both compassionate and resilient.
Real wisdom in life comes from doing something and failing.
