"Shingon Zen"

Postby mujushinkyo » Sun Jun 10, 2012 5:38 pm

I've been doing Shingon "Ajikan" meditation for some time now. The main way is where you visualize the letter "A" in Siddham script on a moon disk and then let it sink into your heart. There's also a version where you merely repeat the sound "Ah" with every breath. It seems a good thing to shake up one's "practice" now and then by trying new techniques, because doing the same thing can become stagnant. This is, of course, only my opinion.

That is indistinguishable from Tibetan practices ... and The Yoga Tantras behind Shingon share the same 5 basic features of the Mahayoga texts that came a tad later and went to Tibet. (3 samadhis, ect...) AND - these same methods show up as support in Ati as well.
