Amtabha mantra

By Vimalasara on Fri, 6 Dec, 2013 - 06:05
Day 20 is the Amitabha mantra. Amitabha is a deep red archetypal Buddha. He is particularly associated with love and loving kindness, and with meditation. When we chant the Amitabha mantra you could imagine feeling connected to a great red sun of love and stillness; to the heartbeat of loving kindness. You could visualize or feel rays of ruby light streaming towards you and filling you with love, easing your suffering and stilling your heart and mind. The mantra is...

The month of December will be filled with the spirit, love and symbolism of Bodhisattva’s. We had our first meeting with Tara in Saturday’s podcast by Vajratara titled “Mindfulness: The Great Love”. Today’s FBA Dharmabyte is a further tribute to “The Bodhisattva Tara” by Kamalashila.

There is a spontaneous laughter: “ha ha ha”, this laughter is the realization that we have always been pure, the purity has just been covered up with life. When you chant the mantra you can feel your shortcomings and unskilful actions falling away from you, being purified by Vajrasattva, eventually leaving you with...

Afternoon Into Night With Suvarnaprabha

By Dayamudra on Wed, 25 Sep, 2013 - 14:20What a beautiful afternoon into night, all of us gathered around Suvarnaprabha’s bed, saying our goodbyes, singing ‘We Are The Champions’ at the top of our lungs. Meditated and chanted and remembered her down in the shrine room. Footsteps in the rooms above moving her body out of the space where there has been so much love. The golden light was palpable. This is why we are practicing. We all will die. Tomorrow we will meditate on the half hour...
