During this two-minute audio excerpt from an hour-long radio interview, Zen Buddhist priest Rev. Taka Kawakami explains how meditation can be mind training, and how to simply meditate.
He says that you should just sit up straight and feel your breathing. It might help to have longer inhales and exhales. He suggests breathing in for a count of five and exhaling for a count of ten.
