Advice on naissance Zen meditation?
I think the in one piece "zen" thing is almost no advice or books or Sites or 'getting into it' I infer anyone who gave you counsel would steer you in the wrong direction, and any book you read would lug you farther from it etc. Even this here will point you in the wrong direction. If i be a teacher i would influence... " lean closer and i will tell you." after i would slap the shitt out of you. So give up, live your go, forget about zen, and you stuff find it. The zen that is spoken of is not the true zen.
If you are a total loser resembling the totaly lost guy above me and can't understand anything i purely said and you want to misunderstand Zen and have books on your shelf and enjoy lots of meaningfull self important conversations almost it instead of having silence contained by your mind and heart, then read Zen Flesh Zen Bones and afterwards slap yourself in the obverse, wake up, and knock it bad and get on near your life.
There is a book I own... ' Zen for Idiots'. Look it up, probably they enjoy it in Barnes and Noble somewheres.
Best swot from a meditation teacher or class.
I love meditation. Try here (Meditation centre all over the world)
I read once that samurais reason about their death a lot.
They think how they might die,
and when they might die,
and so on.
I did it, and the result.
I'd recommend the method espoused by Chogyam Trungpa - not strictly zen meditation but when you're beginning they adjectives do the same entry.
Simply count your breath in - out (1) contained by - out (2), etc. through 10. Then when you get to 10 start again at 1.
Sounds flowing, doesn't it?
Your mind will take you away from the counting at some point. Gently bring your mind posterior to the counting.
Do this at least 20 minutes a daylight (20 minutes twice a day is preferable). Also, do it for a minimum of six months formerly you decide if it's right for you or not.
Beginning meditation is simple to explain and immensely challenging to accomplish.
Read "The Myth of Freedom" by Trungpa to win a really excellent overview of why this simple meditation is so important - you must swot up how your mind works - how your ego works.
The following sites and books are the ones i read and found useful
1.The three pillars of Zen by roshi philip kapleau
Dont spend too much time reading buddhist scriptures and philosophy.What is difficult and adjectives is the actual process of finding the time to sit and do the meditation.The dhammapada is an ancient text that contains the teachings of the buddha.Try to buy one which is smooth to read and not too scholarly.The initial oxford press publication copy of the dhammapada was unreadable given the obsure reference and the pali (original languagein which it was written) be distracting.The version i use very soon has merely english,fits into my pocket and does not contain any scholarly explanations.
