Rumination, Contemplation, and Mantra - 14feb23

Rumination is exhausting with its endless examination and reexamination of a problem! Let’s sustainably harness its energy.

During your inhalation mentally recite the FIRST rhetorical question “How could this feel stressful?” Physically relax as you intone “Om Ben-za Sat-to Hoong” as many times as is comfortable during a single exhalation. Then practice four rounds.

Train in compassion with the slogan, “All beings’ stress, may I soothe!” The SECOND rhetorical question “How could this never last?” and the THIRD “How could this NOT be me?” strengthen our practice of letting-go.

Practice each exercise in the manner of the first, in coordination with inhalation, mantra, and relaxation. After the fourth exercise rest in the non-graspable nature of mind,

with the slogans “Notice this…” and “relaxing!” for sixteen rounds. Repeat these contemplations and meditations as needed. _/\_

Let us conclude

call to action

not by monasteries but by students

blogs, and class materials is supported

by the generosity of viewers, and listeners, and readers

just like you.
