The moment we sit down to meditate, our minds begin to wander. Meditative practices provide paths that direct and focus our thoughts. Yet, left on our own, we have to think: What do I do next? Is this the right direction? Guided Meditation frees us from those thoughts; like a GPS, it tells us precisely how to follow the path. Click on the links below to hear Rinpoche guide you.
