GUIDED MEDITATION: Not-Self Contemplation with the Breath

Description

In this guided meditation, Ajahn Dhammasiha suggests to develop the perception of "Not-Self; Not-Me; Not-I; Not-Mine" together with the breath as our meditation object.


Rather than fighting them or trying to suppress them, we regard all disturbing thoughts, emotions, phantasies, and so on as:


  • This is not me
  • This is not mine
  • This is not my Self


Seen as not really belonging to us, they loose their power over us, and we can let go of them.


Additionally, 'Anatta-Saññā' can be applied even to our meditation object, the breath. If we see the breath as 'not-me', we do not hold it too tightly, and the meditation goes swimmingly.
