The MeditationExpert page that you linked to shows that the person knows nothing about proper tantric practice. It's worth remembering that tantra is meant to be kept sec...

How many types of Shamatha meditation in Tendai Buddhism?

Hi every one

Shamatha meditation did include chanting mantras while meditating, such as meditating with Chanting Buddho

While Shamatha meditation is counting breath in Tendai Buddhism based on what I know, is there any mantra chanting in Tendai Buddhism?

Thanks

After all, you're just practicing kung fu, not some heathen religion. :lol: I was thinking about joining Ninja Class, but I was so busy recently....I do...
