Episode 005 – the 12-Step Buddhist Podcast: OM AH HUM Meditation by Lama Yeshe

By Lama Thubten Yeshe at Geneva, Switzerland (Archive # 044, Last Updated Apr 23, 2008)

When you meditate, don’t squeeze yourself. Just sit comfortably and let your breath energy flow naturally; be just as you are. Don’t think, “I’m a meditator”; don’t think, “I’m humble”; don’t think, “I’m an egotist.” Don’t think anything; just be.
