The Origin of Mindfulness Meditation


mindfulness meditation practice

Mindfulness meditation has been around for thousands of years. Though its exact origin is unknown, although it is found in ancient texts of nearly every major religion including Hinduism, Buddhism. Judaism and Christianity.

However, it’s Buddhism that really helps us understand the origin of mindfulness meditation because it is integral to the Buddhist path. In Buddhism, it’s important to cultivate a non-judgemental awareness of yourself, your feelings, your mind and your surroundings. This distance and observation can be trained through a series of mindfulness meditations.

For many religions, mindfulness meditations were used as a way to step back from the world and connect with your spiritual self. Sometimes this connection was used as a way to resist temptation, while other times it was used as a way to realize and understand the connection between “self” and “other.”

Today the meaning of mindfulness meditation has shifted away from its religious connections. While some still practice it within the context of religion, mindfulness meditation has been adopted by psychologists, healthcare professionals and other secular organizations as an effective way to deal with the stresses and illnesses of the modern world.

Though many unique styles and techniques have been developed, all mindfulness meditations have the following in common:

  • Awareness Is Key
    The key to meditation is developing awareness. Some forms practice awareness of the body or breath, while others focus on the senses or internal thoughts.
  • Non-Judgement Is Essential
    Experiencing without judgement is critical.  In other words, mindfulness is about witnessing without attachment, judgement or criticism of the experience.
  • It Brings Peace
    When you witness without judgement of attaching meaning,  this detachment results in a calm and peaceful mind.

The Benefits Of Mindfulness Meditation
