Beginner Buddhism Part Five: Making a home altar

This is the fifth video in the little web-series I’ve been making lately:

I tried to change up the recording a bit (moved my iphone to horizontal, not vertical) among other things little tricks. Getting more familiar with iMovie lately. πŸ˜€

  1. Great video! Here is one thing about altars that is important for me: I make sure that the altar is high enough that I am looking slightly upward. Partly a sign of respect, partly a way to encourage ‘alpha waving,’ which helps to smooth out some of the rough spots in getting used to meditation.


    1. Hi John, thanks! That was a demo altar I made because the lighting was better although my daughter does “Namu Namu” there to that statue.

      I totally agree: it’s better when it’s above eye-level so the altar I normally use is higher up. You’ll see it in the following episode. πŸ™‚
