sutra based meditation

eggsavioreggsavior Dagobah Veteran

i have found myself reciting specific lines from the dhammapada and other scripture in my mind at random times during the day. i have reread the DP several times over and i have favorite lines that resonate with me. in reciting them, i am constantly flowing with that dharma...i believe i understand what dharma refuge is now. when i think about the dharma i am constantly at ease; not in an artificial way either. i truly believe in the dharma and truly know that when i take refuge in it i will be at peace.

    You have plan! <3 Seems like a helpful, functional practice. Aimless wandering and wondering is the road many of us have been down ...

    Good call :)

    I love the DP as well :) Ever check out the poems of the early monks and early nuns it's these two little books in the pali canon that are amazing!

    If I may ...
    Attention to a sutra or riffing on a theme ...
    Bringing attention can also involve writing any insights (spiritual diary) and sharing them. Dharma becomes Sangha (community/sharing/spiritual friendship) B)
