The one you do.

The question does not mean much.
Are you dissatisfied with your Nichiren practice?
Do you wish to change your bank to that of the far shore?

Are you intending to make a deposit? :broke:

Chö is a powerful practice that involves offering your body to karmic debtors.

I fled Him, down the nights and down the days; I fled Him, down the arches of the years; I fled Him, down the labyrinthine ways, Of my own mind; and in the mist of tears, I hid from Him, and under running laughter. Up vistaed hopes I sped; And shot, precipitated, Adown Titanic glooms of chasmèd fears, From those strong Feet that followed, followed after. But with unhurrying chase, And unperturbèd pace, Deliberate speed, majestic instancy, They beat - and a Voice beat - More instant than the Feet - ‘All things betray thee, who betrayest Me.’

A prayer to remain in present moment mindful. :smile: Chod, since in memory is ego playing.

Dependent on our practice; Vajrasattva meditation, mantra reciting. The short mantra:

*Om Vajrasattva Hung*

I leave this for you: http://www.berzinarchives.com/web/en/ar ... asics.html
If you are interested in the practices, please contact a center or monastery.

:anjali:

ps: :soapbox: To avoid misunderstanding of karma since I write here on open internet; suffering/happiness is the result of past actions. But in these actions is no bad or good entity standing on its own, by that the result is not a curse or gift.
All our phenomenal experiences (happiness, unhappiness) are connected with the fate of others. Altruistic actions for the welfare of all beings, in these is ones' own welfare accomplished.
Therefore there is taught that recalling mindfulness right now at the present moment is important.
