To study is to know the texts,
To practice is to know your defilements,
To attain the goal is to know and let go.

[quote="bodom" ] No. I use 'buddho' the way mahasi students use mental labeling: to connect fully to each and every moment of every activity.

[/quote]

I think I see what you mean. I'm usually a labeller myself. ;) However I'll be trying "Buddho" as I'm always looking for ways of improving mindfulness "off the cushion".

Brief question about the 'Buddho'-mantra

Postby Ben_86 » Tue Oct 12, 2010 2:14 pm

Ajahn Chah sometimes recommended to use the mantra 'Buddho'. I have never done mantra practices so I would like to know how often is the word Buddho supposed to be repeated. Is it every out and inbreath, once in breath cycle or infrequently?

Thanks in advance

I believe it is Bud on the in breath and dho on the out breath.
And crawling on the planets face,some insects called the human race.

Lost in space

I also use it when walking (one foot bud, other dho) since I saw it here on the forum.

To practice is to know your defilements,
