Besides practising meditation, he studied advanced Pali and translation in Thai and Burmese under Sayadaw U Dhammananda at Wat Tamaoh, Lampang, Thailand, 1983-84. Though it takes practice, over time reminding ourselves to carve out moments of peace and stillness in the middle of a busy day will become second nature.
There are four essential points about how to make meditation a permanent part of your life.(1) JUST START.
Make any small changes you need to make to your schedule and lifestyle, so that this habit is encouraged and has its place.


For example, setting up an alarm clock for the meditation time, or preparing a cushion and corner of the room for the practice. Check out the post on how to practice meditation according to different techniques.(2) HAVE NO EXPECTATIONS.
Other results come in a few months – actually research shows that with daily meditation, even after 8 weeks you already have some noticeable results.
Especially if you are in your first weeks of practice, or if you are doing guided meditations, I would not worry much about doing it laying down.


Once you’ve found one that matches you well, then you will grow more by sticking to it, instead of jumping around to other practices.
This is by no means easy, but I found that having this attitude in mind deepens meditation considerably.Keep practicing seeing everything as a simple temporary movement in your consciousness.
