The purpose of this meditation is to focus on my my body’s lack of true existence.

I made appropriate preparations for meditation and then began to think about how body appears to me normally. My body appears to be a single entity existing independently from other phenomena. But in reality my body is mere name. The body I normally see only exists because I have named it ‘my body’. If my imputing mind were absent for some reason my body that I normally see would cease to exist.

I focused on this lack of existence as my object of meditation.


May all living beings realise the lack of inherent existence of the body.

Practice in the meditation break

I will think ‘where does my body starts and where does my body end. ‘Where is my body’. Does an insect see my body?
