  • Re: Superpowered Breath Meditation

    I've often wondered if most meditation works on the "Fake it 'til you make it" principle of buddhahood, and the main point is to sit there and look serene and be a good example... nah, probably not :awesome:

    Umm which remind me...

    "Sex is terrible, sinful, aberrant, disgusting, degrading.....Now be fruitful and multiply, and repopulate the earth."

    Did the Earth even need repopulating? I think the rhinoceroses, chimps, lions, elephants and so on were getting along perfectly well without a hugely expanded human population.

  • Re: Simple Buddhism

    I have a confession to make... I'm currently reading Zen Mind, Beginners Mind and there is a long section on meditation posture and why it is important. It made me realise that by meditating while lying on my back in bed I may be shirking a little bit.

    And the worst thing is I even have a beautiful new shiny meditation cushion... which I use to put my iPhone on when it's charging. Oh, the shame!

    I use this quote to help with my anger management:
    “Holding on anger is like you are drinking poison and expecting the other person to die.”

    Also, in practicing Buddhism, I use the Buddha power :-). I chant Buddha or Bodhisattva name to calm down. As I am practicing Pureland Buddhism, I either chant A Mi To Fo (Amitabha Buddha) or Guan Yin Pu Sa (Avalokiteshvara Bodhisattva).

    A Mi To Fo

    Yum A Mi To Fu :awesome:
