Lali Lama Bows

Bowing is a very
serious practice.


We should be prepared to
bow, even in our last moment.

Even though it is
impossible to get rid of our self-centered desires, we have to do it. Our true nature
wants us to.

By bowing, we are
giving up ourselves
to the universe.

To give up ourselves
means to give up our dualistic ideas and become one.

When you

become one with everything that exists, you find
the true meaning of being.

“Zen Mind,
Beginner’s Mind”

By Shunryu Suzuki

Half Bow

Full Bow

Bowing is one of the most humble and spiritual acts a human can
perform. It is an action that simultaneously signifies acceptance, deep understanding and a greater appreciation for self and others.

Through bowing, we accept, understand, appreciate and feel our soul.

Through bowing, we cast aside the narrow confines of the self and
accept the energies of the universe.

Through bowing, we are connected to the energy of “Heaven” when we open and spread our arms.

Through bowing, we are connected to the energy of “Earth” when we
bend at the waist and lay our upper bodies on the ground (Full Bow).

Bowing Meditation is a dynamic form of meditation that simultaneously strengthens and makes our physical body more flexible, improves energy circulation, and reliably helps us to listen to the voice of your soul.

Through bowing, we experience the oneness and energies of “Heaven”, “Earth” & "Our-self".

Bowing Meditation is an act of sincerity for cleansing

our soul.

Let's dedicate 108 Bows for the purification of all Souls.
