Mindfulness: A Finger Pointing to the Moon—this was the title of the editorial that inaugurated the very first issue of Mindfulness (Singh, 2010). The Founding Editor-in-Chief, Nirbhay Singh, chose a reference to this gesture attributed to Huìnéng, the Sixth Patriarch of Chán Buddhism, to signal the intention he had for this journal. Disseminating robust scientific findings and theoretical debate about mindfulness is not mindfulness itself. The journal can thus provide a forum to point to mindfulness, which is something that readers are encouraged to experience themselves.
