[prMac.com] Rome, Italy - MiaFoto today is proud to announce the release of iPuja 3.2, an update to its popular meditation toolkit developed for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch. The Dhammapada plays an important part in the spiritual life of Buddhists by providing guidance and advice. This collection of scriptures, the collected utterances of Buddha himself, have given millions of people comfort and instruction, enriching their experiences in the process.
For this reason, the latest version of the iPuja meditation app has been improved to display a specially curated verse from the Dhammapada at the conclusion of every session. As such it remains the only iOS app which combines meditation session timing and scriptures to create a comprehensive tool for improving the spiritual life of Buddhists.
iPuja version 3.2 adds a number of new features designed to improve help you master the Theravada meditation technique. The addition of regular 'interval' gongs allows you to subtly monitor progress through each meditation session for instance. The app is also completely free to download, with no limits on functionality.
"The addition of Dhammapada scriptures to the app is just the first step towards helping people master meditation techniques," said Fabrizio Bartolomucci who developed iPuja, "At some time in the near future we hope to be able to provide personalised encouragement based on user's meditation habits, along with feedback from Buddhist monasteries."
The new app features also make it easier to run successful group meditation sessions. AirPlay support means that iPuja 3.2 can output gong sounds, soothing music or even dhamma talks to compatible speakers, so that everyone is aware of the start and finish of each session. The new app has been extended to ensure that any playlists are saved between sessions, and configured to add a period of silence at the end of the playlist, allowing for deeper meditation to take place.
"iPuja 3.2 is a massive development for Buddhist meditators," continued Bartolomucci, "Not only is the app now completely free, but it has everything needed for an individual or a group to focus on reaching a higher level of consciousness. The inclusion of Dhammapada scriptures provides food for thought at the end of every session, allowing people to deepen their spiritual lives even after meditation has finished. We hope that by making the app free to download, more people will be able to benefit from the discipline of meditation."
