Week 1
 First mediation experience cleared some of my wrong perception. I once though that the focus of
meditation is just to train yourself to keep concentrated. However, Ven Hing Hung explains only by
necesary developing conditions can our mind pay attention to the object of focus. This surely is the
best illustration of the Law of Dependent Origination.The importance of proper apparatus is quite
unexpected to me. I only brought one big towel for me to sit on. After 20 mins, I started to feel like
my legs are stiff(?!). Just as what the Ven said, if you sit higher, there would be more contact surface
of your leg and the ground, preventing your ankle from being painful. I realised how important it is
because when I was meditating, my mind was occupied with the thought that “my legs are
uncomfortable.” I did not quite successfully ignore the thought according to the Ven’s instruction.
You cannot enjoy the benefit of mediation if you do not satisfy the supporting conditions at the
beginning. I would have follow strictly the rules and brought enough towels for supporting my x,x,x.

 First day to mediate at home. As a comfortable, quite and secure place is essential to meditation, I
let my family members know I am meditating and in need of silence for 20 minds. Otherwise if
anyone suddenly intrude into the room, it makes the experience quite unpleasant as I feel like the
peacefulness is being ruined. I also sit on cushion to prevent myself from ground chill, this makes
me feel more comfy and can free my mind from interference. Unlike in Loke Yew Hall where there
are many of us doing meditation together and there is a “right” atmosphere, I am not quite used to
the atmosphere at home. So I am looking for ways to make me enter into the state of calm
immediately. I recalled that hearing bell tapping sound in mediation seminar. I downloaded an app
to set alarm for meditation. The bell rings at the beginning and after 20 minutes. This is helpful for
me to assimilate the mediation at home to that we did in Hall.

 My object of today is Breathing. I did have a little difficulty in concentrating all the time in the past
two days. But today it gets better. I do feel that being mindful of my breathing in conducive to my
concentration. I am always mindful when I breathes in an out. I also try to mindful of my
breathing rhythm. When I feel like I am breathing in and out short, I adjust my rhythm to keep it
stable. I develop sensitivity to my body and the benefit is obvious: i simply dont have time to think
about other thoughts. I feel like I start to synchronise my body with my mind. My mind does assist
my concentration and relaxation.

 Proper posture is conducive to achieve relaxation in mediation. Correcting myself a straight back but
Not to wear accessories or glasses. Pyjamas, comfy clothes. Free from any things that might bring
potential interference// relaxed neck and chest is important. Creating comfortable environment
really encourage my mind to enter into meditative state. I tend to feel like I get more concentrated
at home. Maybe because I am familiar with the environment, I can adjust the lights or air
conditioner temperature as my wish.

 I think I have familiarise myself with proper posture and breathing. So today I think the essence has
to be “adjusting my mind”. Smiley face apparently can really make you feel relaxed. It is like saying
to your mind that you are happy. Reinforcing in my mind that i am happy. Feels like tends to stay
more focused. In contrast, when one second there is a negative thought e.g. I haven’t done the 40
pages assigned reading, I would link and recall many other unpleasant things. So re-adjusting my
pose and get back a smiley face works well for me. It serves as a reminder for me to relax all over
again. It is like a useful “reset button” for me.
