Free meditation timers added to Wildmind

incenseIf you’ve ever found it distracting keeping one eye on the clock while meditating, you’ll be pleased to know we’ve just added some MP3 meditation timers to Wildmind.

You can play these files directly on the site (remember to bookmark the page) or you can download the files to your own computer.

We’d like to thank Vajramati of the Triratna Buddhist Community in New York City for having put these files together.
