This Group Is Finding Peace….In The NY Subway?



An organization known as Buddhist Insights, led by monk Bhante Suddhaso, has taken to the streets to promote the idea that meditation really can be practiced anywhere.



“You can meditate anywhere regardless of how quiet or how loud it is,” Suddhaso said.

So far, they’ve meditated in a factory, sidewalks, and now subways.

I’ve often avoided loud places when I meditate, so I can’t imagine how hard it is in such a loud area! But Suddhaso believes it’s only an obstacle if you treat it as such.



Amazingly, two other riders joined in the meditation during the recording and an onlooker loved it.

“I think that’s wonderful they’re doing in that it’s very needed, very needed right now,” Matthew Zimmerman added.

Even the interviewer joined in and appreciated it. “At first I kept hearing the noises, but after a while it was easy to drown that out, so to be able to just put that aside, and sort of focus on my own thoughts, I was surprised by that,”

I guess the key is to remember peace can be found anywhere — regardless of the situation.
