Meditation to deal with panic attacks, anxiety, and other painful feelings Pt 2

By Mingyur Rinpoche 9 minutes
In this short video, Tibetan Buddhist meditation master Yongey Mingyur Rinpoche explains how he used the practice of meditation to transform the way he dealt with the crippling panic attacks and anxiety experienced as a child. He also shows how this approach can be used with any painful feeling or emotion. In another video teaching, "My Story ~ Mingyur Rinpoche talks about his childhood experience with panic attacks and anxiety," he describes his childhood experiences with panic and anxiety.

  1. I do have the same situation here. I believe I will manage to overcome it like what Rinpoche has successfully managed. Just need devotion to it. Rinpoche is my role model. 🙂

  2. Hi, Mingyur Rinpoche lists three techniques to deal with panic attacks (and other problems). The first is Calm Abiding Meditation, the sesecond Loving Kindness and Compassion Meditation. I could not understand the third though I listened several times. I would appreciate it if someone who knows what the third technique is would please post it. Thank you!

  3. Hi Diane @cellodiane

    The third technique Rinpoche refers to is vipassana (insight) meditation.

  4. Due to pituitary problems, I am experiencing strong anxiety that may go on for days. I will wake up frightened (no reason, it just happens). So, I focus my meditation on observing the anxiety. I observe where I feel it (knot in stomach). I focus on my breath and the way I often need to gulp some air. If I stay with it, I can usually get to a more calm abiding state. It is truly a relief.

  5. I too felt relax at very first vedios I watch about rinpochche taught with meditative posture and how to observe the fear and sound…how to proceed every steps. ..Rinpoche explain very clearly as simple man I would learn as I dont have any experience except therotical knowledge until Rinpoche shows made me more experience and joyous to learn and do more and exerTed me more motivated
