Sacred words meditation

Relaxes your body, calms your mind, develops compassion.

 

1. Find a nice quiet place, private, where you won't disturb anyone else.

2. Breathe deeply for one minute to clear your mind. Then begin to recite the mantra:

OM MANI PADE HUM

Repeat it slowly in a low, comfortable quiet voice. If thoughts intervene return to focusing on the mantra.

3. After a few minutes of repeating the mantra continuously, begin visualizing your words reaching all living beings and relieving them of their suffering. Be sure to include yourself. Do this for a 108 recitations. If you have a rounded traditional Buddhist rosary, one full rotation is exactly 108.

4. End your meditation by sitting quietly and focusing on your breath for two minutes.
