Research has been done on how the monks pray,.... not only with intention, but through meditation, through an altered state of consciousness, actually “feeling” the emotions of love, and “visualizing” healing taking place.
The geometrical design in this drawing is the ancient sri yantra.... the visible “OM”. There is a mysterious beauty in this symbol of 9 isosceles triangles that intertwine in perfect balance and harmony. Like a mandala, the yantra is used to focus the mind, concentrate and meditate.
A drop of water sends ripples of energy throughout the body of water, just as our thoughts send out a vibrational energy throughout the universe.
Faith is the ability to have trust in powers greater than yourself, to enter confidently into the unknown, and to have belief in your own abilities. It is through the principle of faith, that we can consciously tap into the infinite energy and powers of invisible forces always present and available.
