How does offering music work?

When one offers music via playing a bell, drumming, singing, gongs, bowls, horns, flutes, strings, etc. how does one offer it? Offer the instrument and visualize it resonating divine sounds? Play the instrument and recite mantras while doing so (or recite the mantras before or after playing?)? I hav...

Concerns Regarding Mercuric Pills

https://www.mdpi.com/2077-1444/10/4/282/htm

So I just read an article over the mendrup pills, however, seeing some of these substances, wouldn't they poison someone rather than actual heal them? Especially if it contains mercury? Anyone with experience in this?

Re: 11 syllable Amitabha mantra

Is the 11 syllable Amitabha Mantra suitable to practice without receiving some kind of trasmission or approval? It is: OM AMIDEWA AYU SIDDHI HUNG HRI That specific mantra DEFINITELY needs a transmission. "Namo Amitabha" or "Om Ami Dewa Hrih" is sufficient on the sutric level, but for that mantra, I...

Re: Destroying the Demon of Procrastination

Re: Sadhana of Buddha Sakyamuni

Answer to first question: Before trying to do a sadhana you've found on line, get the lung/oral transmission from a qualified Teacher Who can also give you its instructions and answer your question. Answer to second question: No, you've offered it to the Buddhas. It's no longer yours to use for you...

Re: Commitment...?

[ My experience with Sakya is that yes, if you attend a program and receive a big empowerment then you are allowed to make that a main practice that you do every day, if want, and that you attend the program with precisely that intention in mind. In fact, it is the 'default settting'. In Sakya it is...

For one starting a Buddhist club (my new school has a Christian club already, though it’s very open variety here in NY unlike when I was in TX), what should one present forth that isn’t religious?
