Re: How do you meditate?

Breathe in nature.

Re: Earth Poetry

Here where the bird nests this climber rests, high in the tree- domain of ant and bee- here I am free. Go to the lowest, and you'll see the highest- this Milarepa said. Better at leaping and jumping Since I learned self-trusting. Three jewels, boundless lands In which tall oak stands I have faith in...

Re: White Tara / Namgyalma

What's the difference between Green Tara and White Tara? I've studied some a lot, but not this one. I remember one mantra is Om Tare Tuttare Tuttare Svaha, repeated, and the other has one or two more lines, which one could find. . If this isn't in the right place, no need to reply to it :meditate:
