  1. @kamwrites ok sorry to be the bearer or bad news but it’s “AUM”…it’s the chant meaning (A) being the creator (U) being the protector and (M) being the destroyer

  2. There is more than one level of meditation. You can meditate while listening to music, while typing, while cooking, while walking. The point is to be aware of what’s going on, and take something out of the experience. Meditation is not just sitting and humming “OHM”…which if I’m not mistaken is what a meditation track on the ipod represents. Combining this with sitting meditation adds to the experience of each.

    You miss the point. And you have no concept of the power of music. The point of meditation is not purely to escape stimulus.

  5. This is not walking meditation. Look at her eyes. She does not know anything about walking meditation.

  6. Hehe… How the f… is listening to music, while meditating, mindful? How about playing a game on the phone at the same time?

  7. Screw that i aint meditating when walking, i’ll probs get mugged.

    Or people will think im on drugs just like she looks.

  8. @sxeforlife555 not necessarily, as long as your mind is in the present and focused on your walking

  9. No need for music. Just stop when you want to! Just listen to your surroundings. But yes when practicing walking meditation and then going to sitting meditation will improve concentration and mindfulness.
