Re: Bullworker and isometrics.

A minute is a basic interval, each repeat of that is a rep. Reps until time to move on to something else. Facing up, I find a low couch or similar, rest my shoulders on it and hold the body up with heels. They both sound like pretty good exercises. I'm guessing if you do it without moving then you ...

How long do you plank for?
How do you do them facing up?

Re: Bullworker and isometrics.

Another new gadget I've been using, and I like is called the Isoflo. It can be used isometrically or with movement. I find it is good for the shoulders and back. I can get a stiff neck and shoulders and I found this really helped to loosen them up.

Bullworker and isometrics.

I've been using an old style piece of exercise equipment called a Bullworker. I use it for isometric exercise. It does seem to work and tone me up with not a great deal of time or effort. Isometric exercises are also supposed to help with elevated blood pressure, so that is good for me too as I get ...

Contemplation

Hi, I was talking with my teacher about an issue that I have with overeating. He said to contemplate the effects and consequences of what I eat. Think about what I really wanted. He said this was more important than simply trying to follow a rule because ego gets in the way, ego doesn't like to be t...

Re: Buddhism, and theistic religions.

Another little book that I picked up a few years ago was: The Four Buddhist Books In Mahayana. Translated by Upasika Chihmann. It is a lovely book with a very endearing and sincere testimony by Miss P. C. Lee (the translator). This book also talks about chanting Amitabha. There seems to be a few dif...

This is all really interesting. I haven't read the lotus sutra, I don't know why I've skipped over that?

Buddhism, and theistic religions.

Hello, I've probably asked this question or one similar to it, but didn't explain myself well... So I'll ask in this forum and explain myself a bit better. I'm a Buddhist and follow the Karma Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism, though I also like to read some translations of the Pali suttas and I like...

Re: The teaching of Buddha.

Thank you, I've found a little bit from them on YouTube, they do seem quite non-sectarian.
Although my dad didn't belive in any religion, it was supportive for me to have their book with me as he died.

My father was very ill and died a few days ago, his aorta ruptured. In the hospital multifaith chapel they had some books to give away produced by 'Bukkyo Sending Kyokai' , The Society for the Promotion of Buddhism. I practice Karma Kagyu Tibetan Buddhism, but I did find it helpful to have this book...
