Lama Surya’s “Awakening Now” Podcast- EP 41
Final episode of the IV Part series on “Awakening The Buddha Within”
“The Six Kinds of Mindfulness”

Lama Surya Das introduces the six kinds of mindfulness in Tibetan Buddhism. These forms are about developing mindfulness practically. Surya explores being mindful of the path; of the bigger picture in life; mindfulness of awareness; of the teachings that you have received; of community; and recollection of the source of all radiance, from which everything originates.

Ten Tips and Pointers for Befriending Time

1) Rest in the breath while letting go of all thoughts, concerns, plans, worries, and preoccupations.
2) Be mindful of the physical sensations you feel right now.
3) Feel the good earth beneath your feet or the seat that cradles you.
4) Chant a mantra or sacred phrase again and again, with pure, undivided concentration and focus.
5) Make eye contact with another being, and feel compassion and loving-kindness for whomever you are with.
6) Smile at someone, hug someone, or help someone
7) Go outside and make contact with nature through the sky, clouds, trees, a flower, a body of water, the earth between your fingers, or any other manifestation of the magnificent natural world.
8) Read sacred worlds from the world’s wisdom traditions and scriptures.
9) Take a break, a sacred pause, an “honorable rest”—whether for Sabbath or just for an hour or two—at least once a week if not every day.
10) Listen to music, sing, dance, pray, and play.

Now breathe, smile, and relax…You have time.
