Buddhist Thought: Mantra

A mantra is not like a prayer to a divine being. Rather, the mantra is the deity, is enlightenment, immediately manifest.

– Lorne Ladner, “Wheel of Great Compassion”

A mantra, like the one on the side of my blog, is not a prayer. It is a way of life, a thought. It is something you choose in order improve your life, to help you making decisions. It leads you to your enlightenment, it helps you to manifest in the here and now.
