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 oneself and others.

Through bowing, we accept, understand, appreciate, and feel oneness with our "Silent Master". 

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 keeps our physical body flexible, improves energy circulation, and reliably helps us to awaken our "Silent Master", where we can listen to the voice of our soul.



Through bowing, we experience the oneness and energies of “Heaven”, “Earth” & our "True-Self".

Bowing Meditation is an act of sincerity for cleansing
our soul.

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

Let's help others awaken their "Silent Master", and let us all share the peace, harmony, and joy in our communities.

Let's bow to each other, and together we bow to the universe.
