Re: Feeling smothered when meditating

I heard of such phenomena before... Difficult to judge it online. It reminds me of this thread: https://dharmawheel.net/viewtopic.php?f=45&t=23051&p=344509#p344455 Especially of this last sentence in the OP: .... I want to get rid of this feeling in my chest, I can hardly breathe with it. .... My o...

Feeling smothered when meditating

Hello everyone! Often when I'm meditating I feel like I'm being smothered. I don't have any problem with asthma or anything like that. I asked at the Buddhist meditation group I go to and they said they've never experienced anything like that. (and I got the feeling they found it a strange question)...

Thank you everyone, it's made me really happy to think that he'll also be getting the benefit. You've all been really kind to answer my question! :)

That's why I'm wondering if he gets the benefit without being able to hear it. Like if he...gets the...vibes or something. Maybe I'm not explaining myself very w...

If my dog is deaf does he get any benefit from me saying Om mani padme hung when he's in the room?

This may seem like a silly question but when I meditate our dogs are usually in the room (our beagle will raise a huge racket otherwise).

Re: Tibetan names

When I was given Refuge I was given the name Karma Chyizom. I have never been able to find out what it means. I did recently find this name: Kyizom (which means accumulation of joy, bliss, happiness). I would really appreciate it if someone could tell me are they the same names and if not what does ...
