The Buddhist chant beads are called Mala and they hold 108 beads, You can buy your Mala on Ebay for a dollar. Equipped with your Mala seat yourself in a comfortable spot, close your eyes and repeat the following Mantra: Om Ma Ni Pad Me Hum 108 times, while the beads pass your fingers with each repetition of the Mantra. Don’t over analyze it, just do it as often as you can. Watch as you blood pressure drops.
Om ma ni pad me hum is Sanskrit.
Om is the sound of “vibration” on the universe. Meant to destroy attachments to ego and establish generosity.
Ma removes the attachment to jealousy and establishes ethics.
Ni removes the attachment to desire and establishes patience.
Pad removes the attachment to prejudice and establishes perseverance.
Me removes the attachment to possessiveness and establishes concentration .
Hum removes the attachment to hatred and establishes wisdom.
This is a message of beauty and life.
Note: this worked for me years ago and continues to do so. I just sit comfy and do it. No fancy position. Also, if I can’t sleep, I start the chant and one hundred percent of the times just pass out asleep to all worries.
