How to focus on studies and chanting Amitabha?

Postby jekai » Fri Jun 01, 2012 8:57 pm

I am a student and I put all of my focus on studies. I try to chant Ambitabha's name as much as possible, but it is very difficult for me to concentrate on chanting and studying and concentrating on school. What should I do?

Do one thing at a time, and really do it.

Do your best, especially in your practice!

and relax sometimes, ok?

See what are common mistakes that beginners make. http://www.dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=77&t=8633

You chant Amitabha Buddha 3x times then bow and it will resonate in the halls of the monasteries and temples.
