The Faces of Meditation: Oona

 

My name is Oona. I am 7 years old.

I will be in 2nd grade at my school in Knoxville, TN this fall. I like to meditate. I have been meditating for one year. I learned how to meditate in a temple with my friends from Burma.

I like to meditate because it calms me down. Meditation is also yoga. Meditation could be anything, like gardening, as long as you concentrate.

I can meditate for five minutes.

The Tattooed Buddha

The Tattooed Buddha was founded by Buddhist author Ty Phillips and Dana Gornall. What started out as a showcase for Ty's writing, quickly turned into collaboration with creative writer, Dana Gornall and the home for sharing the voices of friends and colleagues in the writing community. The Tattooed Buddha strives to be a noncompetitive, open space for the author’s authentic voice. So while not necessarily Buddhist, we are offering a dialogue that is aware and awake to the reality of our present day to day, tackling issues of community, environment, and compassionate living.
