  Bob Stahl
This is a guided meditation on the 32 Parts of the Body beginning with Head hair, Body Hairs, Nails, Teeth, Skin. The practice involves reciting the parts verbally and then mentally and to know the color, shape, location, direction, delimitation, as well as the definition and function of each part. The methodical practice of the 32 Parts of the Body Meditation can help the meditator understand the true nature of the body and no self.
