I think an even better way is to keep repeating over and over the mantra: serenitas nunc
(As taught by Ajahn Kramerdasa)

I'm sure that's how the Buddha would do it. :thinking:

Serenitas nunc

Post by Vanda » Sat Aug 01, 2015 9:27 am

Try the mantra: serenitas nunc

It's language is Latin but it works better than "Buddho".

Just keep repeating it over and over, especially during times of stress :)

Buddho works fine for me when I use it occasionally, I certainly wouldn't want to substitute it with Latin words.

Serenitas nunc translates to "serenity now" which is a reference to the TV show Seinfeld if you're unaware. As is one of Vanda's earlier posts mentioning Ajahn Kramerdasa. There is no such Ajahn, it's a play off of the character Kramer from the same show, for anyone confused by the posts.

Thanks for catching that. I am sure it will not happen again.

Re: Seinfield-Buddho style Mantras

I suppose Seinfield-Buddho style Mantras can do the trick if you keep at it. Sad that this point of view was moved off the forum where the topic was being discussed.
