burmese approach

Postby befriend » Tue May 06, 2014 5:02 pm

how does one maintain awareness in daily life using the mahasi sayadaw Burmese method?
when walking say to yourself "i am walking" when riding in a car say to yourself "i am sitting in a seat riding in a car" make sure to be concious of the statement, use your intelligence to simply comprehend it and in my experience this is the best way to be mindful in daily life.
