• Nod to every thing-the lamp, the floor, the chair, the table-showing your respect and appreciation.
  • Pure-love meditation: Picture a person or animal for whom you feel great love and affection, and imagine him or her giving you a look that melts your heart. Think about the things you love most about this special being. With each breath, let your heart fill with the love and affection you feel. Imagine your two souls connected by the caring you have for each other.
  • It's traditional to recite mantras 108 times, but you can recite them for as long, or as briefly, as you want. Just be sure to end with a dedication to fellow beings to lock in your meditation.
  • Remember.


Set the timer for a silent meditation that starts and ends with bells.
