Tibetan monk tells how to meditate

Tibetan monk the Venerable Losang Samten spoke at the Yoga Center of Chico on March 26 about how to meditate to wake up mental consciousness and quiet the senses and thoughts. Five minutes a day is fine, but “drowsiness” is not meditation. Different ways to let go and relax are to count your breath, visualize a color or spiritual icon, look at a mandala, or chant a mantra like aum (it means “I got it”). He’s currently creating a sand painting mandala in the CSUC student union.
