I can almost here the “Tsk Tsk Tsk” disapproval from the temple elders….
But hey, I’ve got an active imagination.
One of my teacher said you can find compassion and mantra anywhere as long as you want it.
Can’t remember when it started. But whenever I have loud dance music in the gym or pub. I like reciting mantra mentally to the beat and in my imagination, beautiful dancing maiden in heaven dances to the music in divine celebration. No sensual desire. Just youth, fun, innocence, dancing in divine celebration!
I love the beat to the Mani. My chanting is the Namu-myho-renge-kyo
Wonderful! I used to chant that when I was 12.
