Contemplation Room 사색의 방
There is nothing to observe in this space but one own consciousness. Since there is nothing to look at in this room, please do not enter unless you plan to spend some time sitting quietly. Please feel free to use any technique of silent meditation contemplation that adheres to a spirit of cooperation. If this is your first time to sit in such a way, you might follow this simple technique based on your own breathing:

Sit in a comfortable position with your back very straight pay attention to your inhalation along with all the physical sensations that accompany it, including the extension of your abdomen, the coolness of the air passing over your upper lip, the changing contact of your clothing against the front of your torso, any other physical sensation you might notice in relation to your inhalation. Observe any thoughts as they pass inout of the mind, trying not to follow themjudge yourself these thoughts. Use the same technique for the exhalation, noticing, perhaps, the warmth of the air passing out of the noseall the other sensations associated with breathing. Again, if any thoughts arise, gently let them pass without pursuing them continue with observation of your breath. This simple meditation technique is only a suggestion, any unobtrusive technique will do.
