Develop your inner happiness

Amitabha-Meditation

We sit cross-legged with the back straight and the stomach relaxed. We awaken strength, peace and happiness within through visualization, mantra and meditation.



1. Image = We concentrate on a picture or a statue and mentally repeat the mantra ”Amitabha”. We look at the head, the upper body, the arms, the hands, the lower body, the legs and the lotus of Amitabha. We use the mantra to connect with the respective body parts, identify with our role model and become a Buddha of light. We mentally repeat the mantra until we can visualize each respective body part and can sense Amitabha within us.

2. Light = We make big circles with the arms and visualize the whole cosmos around us full of light. We mentally repeat: ”I live in the light.” We feel the light within us and around us. We massage our bodies. We repeat the mantra ”Light” until we are in the light.

3. Sending light = We move a hand and send light to all beings. Mentally we state: “I send light to.... May all people be happy. May the world be happy.”

4. Balance = We move the feet and the toes. We think: ”I take things as they are in my life.”

5. Positivity = We circle with the shoulders and turn with the spine from right to left. “My positive thought is today... (I am a winner. My winner way is....)”

6. Prayer hands (palms of the hands together in front of the chest) = ”Om Buddha Amitabha. Om inner wisdom. Please guide and help me on my way.”

7. Mantra = We place our hands on our laps like Buddha Amitabha and mentally repeat the mantra ”Om” and bring the mind to rest. We can connect the mantra with the inhalation and exhalation.

8. Meditation = We stay for a while in a state of meditation. We relax. We go optimistic our way.
May all people be happy. May the world be happy.
