Buddhist Meditation (Triratna Buddhist Community)

By | Published on Sunday 21 August 2011

After a hectic week at the Fringe, my energy levels were starting to flag. So when I was assigned to review a Buddhist meditation session, I was looking forward to light relief from the bustle of the Royal Mile flyer-bombardment and ongoing mental stimulation from so many great shows. It turns out that many others were feeling the same -– it was packed! Instead of being greeted by monks in orange robes, as I’d half-expected, I was welcomed into a small corridor, asked to take my shoes off, and led into an adjoining room by a Scottish lady dressed in everyday clothing. The techniques were simple to follow, and I left feeling refreshed and re-energised.
