“There are many people who practice yoga and meditation who have video-game systems in their homes, but they rarely use them – but these are powerful devices, capable of creating wonderful experiences. I hope anyone who explores Leela will feel enriched by what we’ve created.”

For the first time ever, with Kinect for Xbox 360, players can see and measure their breath in real time on-screen. Leela also offers gentle feedback and encouragement to enhance the meditative breathing practice.

We originally learned about the buddhify app from the Buddhist Geeks Podcast #217. (That episode is especially special to us at MettāNation, as Rohan’s ideas about modernizing our meditation practice to attract new practitioners was one of the motivating factors behind starting our group!)

As it’s descried in the FAQ: “buddhify has been especially designed for people who have always wanted to try meditation but have never got round to it and for people who have just started to hear about the benefits meditation can bring. People who are already meditators will also find it useful but it is targeted for beginners. It is most suitable for people who live in cities, have busy lives and have an Android or iPhone smartphone. ”

The app is now available at buddhify.com for both Android and iPhone. As they point out, “people who are already meditators will also find it useful but it is targeted for beginners. “
