What mantras or songs do you use as part of your practice?

Just curious as to what songs or mantras everyone here at DW use as part of their daily practice. I tend to use Green Tara quite often.

Anyone else willing to share?

Re: Hotei at your nearest dollar store.

It seemed that he is firmly fixed in the North American mind as THE Buddha. It also seems like he's fixed as the Buddha of Chinese restaurants. :shrug: This made me laugh! We have a couple of local restaurants here that sell these by the dozens. Hotei always does put a smile on my face; in particul...

Re: Greetings from the San Fransisco Bay Area

Distortion,

Welcome to DW! Looking forward to your posts. And I must say, that I'm truly jealous you have so many opportunities in regards to your choice of Dharma teachings and centers, as I currently live in a fairly rural community. :)
