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.
“No lists of things to be done. The day providential to itself. The hour. There is no later. This is later. All things of grace and beauty such that one holds them to one's heart have a common provenance in pain. Their birth in grief and ashes.”
- Cormac McCarthy, The Road

Learn this from the waters:
in mountain clefts and chasms,
loud gush the streamlets,
but great rivers flow silently.
- 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:
