Gazing at the Heart of the Buddha
What is Ajikan Meditation?
In Buddhism, meditation is a very important practice.
Among the meditations of Shingon Buddhism, Ajikan meditation is especially important. In this meditation, the goal is to become one with the buddha of the Aji and to feel the spirit of the buddha.
It is one of the easier to practice meditations for the ordinary person.
Why don’t you give it a try? Surely it will refresh any mind and body that has been worn out by modern life.
The Breathing Method of Ajikan Meditation and “Purifying Exercises”
The Ajikan meditation is based on Indian yoga. That is why breathing is very important.
With our breathing we can expel the bad energy from ourselves and cleanse our minds and bodies. Then, with the purifying exercises, we can relax and stretch out our bodies, making it easier for our minds and bodies to enter the Ajikan meditation.
How to Practice Ajikan Meditation
Because the Ajikan meditation is a form of Buddhist training, guidance from a monk is necessary to carry it out.
