Re: The Esoteric Amida

in The Amitayurdhyana Sutra(觀無量壽經), Amitaba buddha is regarded the core of universe,(dharma body) already. that sutra is teaching Chanting or invocation with the insight of the true nature of self and reality of the universe(實相念佛)。

Re: Falling asleep

it would be different according to what kind of meditation you doing. if you are doing koan zen, from my experience, placing your koan on your nose would be helpful. just gazing 2 meters ahead of your eyes, sometimes could make you feel pointless, dozzy. palcing concentration spot on near your body ...
