Since mindfulness is known to be so physically, mentally, and spiritually beneficial, why not practice it right now? Why not in every moment? Burmese Buddhist master Sayadaw U Tejaniya writes that we can indeed practice in this way, and the key is not forceful effort but rather a continuous gentle remembering of our intention to renew our awareness. Thirty-one short chapters—“A Month of Daily Life Meditations”—show precisely how to build a daily life meditation practice that steadily develops relaxation, refreshment, and enlightenment.

“The right time to meditate is all day long, from the moment we wake up and open our eyes, until the moment we fall asleep at night,” writes U Tejaniya. “If you are practicing correctly with right effort, it will definitely bring peace and joy.”
