2| Sit in an upright, comfortable position with your spine straight. In traditional Buddhist breath meditation, individuals sit on the floor in a lotus position. If this is not possible, you may sit in a chair or on the floor in a cross-legged position.
3| Close your eyes and begin taking slow, deep breaths, bringing your attention to your breathing. Focus your mind on your breath in Buddhist breath meditation.
4| Begin counting, starting with the number one as your breath in and two as you breathe out. Try to banish all other thoughts, instead only concentrating on the number and your breath.
5| Continue counting your breaths until you reach 10. If at any time, your mind wanders — simply start back at number one.
6| Count backward once you reach 10 until you have returned to one. The goal is to concentrate on your breath as you count to 10 and back down to one again.
7| Continue this Buddhist meditation practice until you can focus strictly on counting your breaths for 15 minutes without any intrusive thoughts. At that point, try to practice Buddhist meditation breathing without counting and simply focusing on your breath.
