Insight Timer's countdown to 5m sessions

Postby Ben » Wed Jun 19, 2013 1:00 am

I think its pretty impressive that a smartphone app can promote meditation.
Here is an online countdown to 5,000,000 meditation sessions.
Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.

Taṃ nadīhi vijānātha:
sobbhesu padaresu ca,
saṇantā yanti kusobbhā,
tuṇhīyanti mahodadhī.

Sutta Nipata 3.725

Awesome! :twothumbsup:
To avoid all evil, to cultivate good, and to cleanse one's mind — this is the teaching of the Buddhas.

I didn't know there was a free version :)
It's really interesting to see the map with the people currently meditating.
I'll give it a shot!
Thank you for the link. :toast:
