"Don't try to use what you learn from Buddhism to be a Buddhist; use it to be a better whatever-you-already-are." His Holiness the 14th Dalai Lama Please note: a fresh discussion forum is now setup; weldome (back)! Are you interested in Buddhism, but perhaps also somewhat confused about it? Buddhism developed in Asia and therefore contains many concepts that are not well known in other parts of the world. Also, over the 2,500 years since its origin, many different traditions have developed within Buddhism that all have slightly different views and practices that may even appear to contradict each other.

Lojong and Tonglen Community Site Mind Training is a practice in the Buddhist tradition based on a set of proverbs formulated in Tibet in the 12th century by Chekawa. Through the practice we undertake to connect with our world in an unconditionally positive way, and also to take full responsibility for our experience of it. Unlike many practices it does not require that you sign on to a particular system of beliefs, nor is it something that you can only do on your meditation cushion. In fact, the best practice is often done out in the world, with exactly those people and situations that upset and irritate you the most.

Bījākṣara Mantra - Seed Syllables Seed syllables (Sanskrit bījākṣara) are the quintessence of mantra, and the ultimate condensation of the Dharma, containing infinite meaning in a single syllable. Oṃ has held a special place in Indian religion since before Buddhism. Other seed syllables were elaborations of the first letter of a deity's name elaborated with the anusvāra and/or the visarga.
