As much as I appreciate the Soto Zen methods of meditation, I am also
curious about the Tibetan methods of focusing on an image of compassion and
moving towards it. I will use both methods at different times.
The chant I use is OM MANI PADME HUM. I found that when I learned it's
meaning I appreciated it more. I think that using this chant is like
counting breaths, it keeps your mind from jumping around.
As I first discovered Buddhism I thought I had to pick which was best, now I
feel that Buddhism is Buddhism and all the ways are the same. It's all part
of the whole.
I just appreciate learning something new every day.
