Recollecting Buddha Dhamma Sangha to Surmount Negative Emotions
When our mind is assailed by negative emotions like anxiety, anger or frustration, recollection of the Triple Gem is an amazingly effective approach to subdue the unwholesome thoughts and fill the mind with goodness instead.
For instance, we simply repeat the formula of homage to the Buddha for 108 times:
- "Iti pi so Bhagavā Arahaṃ Sammāsambuddho, Vijjā-caraṇa-sampanno Sugato Loka-vidū, Anuttaro Purisa-damma-sarathi, Satthā Deva-manussānaṃ, Buddho Bhagavā ti"
- "He, the Blessed One, is indeed the Pure One, the Perfectly Enlightened One; He is impeccable in conduct and understanding, the Accomplished One, the Knower of the Worlds; He trains perfectly those who wish to be trained; he is Teacher of gods and humans; he is Awake and Holy."
And already the world and as well as our mind look much brighter and happier!
