Key insights from the Thich Nhat Hanh mindful breathing guided meditation

  • Identifying and paying attention to our in-breath and out-breath is a very important practice.
  • “The moment when we hold while breathing and breathe in and out consciously, our body and our mind will become one.”
  • Breathing in and out is the practice of mindfulness, to be really there and available to your beloved ones and ready to encounter life.
  • Happiness, peace, and joy are all found in the present moment, making it the Pureland of the Buddhists and the kingdom of heaven of the Catholics and Protestants.
  • Thich Nhat Hanh sees a tree as a cathedral, with the whole cosmos within it, and believes that the tree belongs to the kingdom of God and the Pureland.
  • Being aware of the fact that we have eyes and appreciating them as conditions for our happiness can bring us back to the present moment and help us find joy in the simple things.
  • Thich Nhat Hanh challenges the belief that one can only enter the kingdom of God or the Pure Land after death, stating “I know that you don’t have to die in order to go into the kingdom of God.”
  • The door to the kingdom of heaven is wide open, but forgetfulness and being lost in the past or future can prevent us from entering.

Mindful Breathing Meditation Guide: Step By Step Instructions From Thich Nhat Hanh

Step 1: Prepare for Breathing

Find a quiet place. Sit comfortably. Close your eyes or soften your gaze.

Step 2: Inhale with Awareness

Breathe in deeply and say to yourself, “Breathing in, I know that I am breathing in.” Feel the air fill your lungs. Focus only on your breath.

Step 3: Exhale with Awareness

Breathe out fully and say to yourself, “Breathing out, I know that I am breathing out.” Release the air slowly. Maintain your attention on your breath.

Step 4: Stop Thinking, Be Present

Notice that by focusing on your breath, your mind becomes quiet. Your thoughts slow down. Your body and mind are in the same place. You are fully present.

Step 5: Unite Body and Mind

As you continue to breathe in and out, feel your body and mind becoming one. With each breath, you are truly yourself.

Step 6: Practice Mindfulness

Recognize that being aware of your breath brings you to the present moment. In this state, you can appreciate the world around you, like the blue sky, trees, and your loved ones.

Step 7: Smile to Yourself

Breathe in and smile to your body. Breathe out and feel the relaxation. Your smile signifies your contentment and connection with the present.

Step 8: Appreciate Simple Joys

Focus on your eyes. Breathe in and acknowledge, “Breathing in, I am aware of my eyes.” Breathe out and smile to your eyes, grateful for the gift of sight.

Step 9: Connect with Nature

Imagine a tree. Breathe in and see the sunshine, rain, and earth that nourish it. Breathe out and appreciate the tree’s beauty and presence.

Step 10: Enter the Kingdom of God

Understand that mindfulness brings you to the kingdom of God or the Pure Land. You don’t have to wait; it’s available now with each conscious breath.

Step 11: Transform Forgetfulness

Recognize that mindfulness erases forgetfulness. By staying present, you let go of past and future worries, anger, and fear.

Step 12: Sound of the Bell

Invite the sound of a bell (if available) and breathe in and out three times, savoring the peace it brings. Enjoy the present moment fully.
