The Tiger's Mouth Blog: Reflections on Chanting
Chanting has helped me breathe more deeply and in a more relaxed manner. This has improved circulation, stamina, resulting in a joyful feeling of lightness.
Thank you so much for the Saturday morning chanting. It is the highlight of my week! Beyond the physical and mental benefits of the chanting, I appreciate the opportunity to come together with other participants from around the world and chant together for the world. It makes me feel like part of an extended family. I enjoy the discussions from the directors before and after the chanting about the value of personal practice and anecdotes about Master Moy, etc. It makes me realize the richness of our tradition. Last, but not least, I love the end when our mikes are unmuted and we have the chance to greet and say goodbye to one another in our various languages. The whole experience of the chanting session is like a mini CIT week, but with so many more participants. At the end of the session, I am sitting at my computer with a huge grin on my face and a wonderful feeling of serenity. Looking forward to next week,
