1023: Look At Our Behavior – Mu A Mu Sa

Good Morning everybody. Today is Saturday, the day we get to be together and practice the meditation methods which activate our compassion energy which interact with the nature within and we reach out to the entire community that we live with.

It is now time to begin. Make sure you are comfortable. I welcome you to this special hour with me. When you sit down and practice this, whether you are watching now or watch the video later, you will benefit from the practice as long as you allow yourself to try out the meditation.

Just sit in a position which you are comfortable. You can sit on a cushion or a chair. Keep your body upright and relaxed so the energy can flow within you. Our method is focusing on the mindful breathing technique with the mantra Mu A Mu Sa.  Some of you may ask what does Mu A Mu Sa mean?  It means: May all sentient beings be free of all suffering and receive the compassion energy from all the Buddhas from ten directions. That is the meaning of Mu A Mu Sa.

By using the mantra and following the mindfulness breathing technique, it will help us to purify ourselves, waking us up. Therefore, we can have a very stable time to look deep into ourself.

Today we practice looking at our behavior to see where it came from how it was built. Therefore, we can change our behavior and get nonattached to the belief “That is just who I am.” Whatever you try to identify yourself you call “I” is always built by your behavior when your point of view interacts with the outside. Today we look deeply into that behavior and we transform ourselves to be more peaceful, happy.

Now is the time you can practice with me.  When you breathe in you breath through your nose, down to your belly expanding it, and concentrate 3 seconds on the heaven gate point. What is the heaven gate point? That is in front of your ending bone, the tail bone, is what we call the haven gate. At that point the energy will be transformed through that up your backbone. So you concentrate right there to lead the energy enters down to your lower body, then when breathing out the energy moves up your back bone up to the top of your head. That is the whole circle. Goes in, goes down, hold it there for three seconds and then concentrate on the heaven gate point, you breathe out and let the energy flow up your backbone and out your mouth.  While you are breathing out you are reciting Mu A Mu Sa.

Let’s begin, and then we will do a guided meditation. We practice together in order for everybody to benefit by receiving compassion energy. This energy activates, awakens ourselves. In order to master this kind of technique you just follow and then you will experience how it works. It is very easy. It is not hard at all.

And now you put your right hand, the wisdom hand, on top of the left hand, the compassion hand. Then we start meditating together.

May all sentient beings be free of suffering and receive compassion energy from all Buddhas from the ten directions. Breathe in, expanding your belly, hold it there, concentrate on the heaven gate point, breathe out, sunken the belly, chanting the mantra: Muuu Aaaa Muuu Saaaa

We are going to do it three times. Every time we do the Mantra with the breathing technique, we do seven times. Three times like that is 21 times. It is good enough to start of the weekend and through out the day and the entire week the energy is going to keep flowing. Our technique is not just about Buddhist, but about being human. About the truth of who we are. The practice allows us to activate and connect deep with the mother earth and understand deeply about ourself. When we connect with mother earth, it is helping us to realize there are much smaller things that are wonderful and beautiful. When we can transform the “I” inside which we define how we are.

Today we talk about “Look at Our Behavior”. Since we were born, we were raised up by our parents, with the environment with the community with our education with all kinds of things from outside which we call perspective, or concepts, which slowly create our own point of view. When all of us have our own point of view we slowly create division. This border is me, and you are on the other side. Based upon how  you view things, how you interact with the world, how you pick up ideas; you slowly create your own behavior. All those kinds of behaviors we have really depend on the environment, the family we live with, friends we hang around with, and our society. If you look really deep our entire behavior reflects where we have been born up to where we live now.

The true behavior which we have not picked up from outside is a reflection of the the Buddha nature. That behavior is very clear, it purifies your energy, it helps you to be happier and be mindful with your life. What is so called your own behavior today is not the true behavior of the Buddha nature from when you just came here on Earth. You forget that true behavior already. You take in the external information from life and then you build your own behavior depending on the environment you live in. Now your own behavior is totally different from your original behavior, your Buddha nature behavior.

The Buddha nature behavior is helping you open up, to welcome and to receive and to offer a change in the good energy to all who live surrounding us. No division. The Buddha nature is truly open and empty. The Buddha nature behavior does not pick on you, your side, and reject others.

So, we look at our behavior today to know how we were raised up from family, friends, community, society, education. That is not our Buddha behavior.  We learned that. We have taken in and slowly we build up the “I”, mine. Many people say, ”This is just who I am.” But truly, according to Buddha’s teaching, we really don’t know who we are. Therefore, we easily go the wrong way, adopt, accept, take in, misguiding ourselves saying, “That’s me, that’s how I am.”

So, when we are angry it is easy to say, “That’s just how I am. If you accept it that’s ok, if you don’t just step away.” We just react to life and behave that way. That is our behavior. We become accustomed to it. We think our behavior is the best. That kind of behavior creates a lot of suffering and attachment, We get stuck in it, and we can’t go beyond to release ourselves to be happy at all.

 So now we look deep into our behavior and ask ourself, and say very clearly,  “Whatever I think is me, my behavior, that is not really who I am.” The true behavior, the true who I am, is the Buddha nature, which is very empty, very pure, very lovely, very kind, very beautiful, very peaceful, does not suffer at all. Let the compassion energy from all the Buddhas connected with us, guiding us and leading us back to the truth of our own behavior of which the Buddha called the Buddha nature.

Now put the right hand, the wisdom hand on top of the left hand, and we will practice 7 more Mu A Mu Sa to receive compassion energy and let the energy help us to clean up, to purify ourself to no longer attach to any behavior that we think is our own behavior, but to neutralize our life, going back to center to the Buddha nature within.

Let us begin.

May all Buddhas bless us, and all sentient beings be free of suffering and receive compassion energy from all Buddhas in the ten directions. Breathe in, expanding your belly, hold it there, concentrate on the heaven gate point, breathe out, sunken the belly, chanting the mantra: Muuu Aaaa Muuu Saaaa

When you are breathing in and out and chanting the mantra Mu A Mu Sa, that is sacramental. This mantra and breathing technique activate your compassion energy which allows you to connect with the Buddha; which helps you awaken your own compassion energy; which motivates you to go beyond and also; which is helping you to break down the barrier of your own behavior which is built up from the outside, not the inside.

We look at our behavior to learn how to be free from suffering. Our behavior is a reflection of what we learned from others from the outside. When we are unaware of the impact of this learned behavior, we are not happy. Even when we are happy it just disappears. The negative energy builds up and we easily react depending on how another interacts with us. Our life and happiness depend on how others influence us. We don’t know the truth of how our behavior is affecting us. Therefore, we just grab it in and think that is how we are.

 Instead let us look at our behavior today. Now is the right time to transform it, to go through and go beyond, moving up to a purer level of life, turn back home inside to accept the true behavior within from the Buddha nature. This nature is very peaceful, very mindful, very healthy, very happy, very loving kindness. If we understand our true nature, then we are ok. We have a right to be our true selves.

Don’t let other people build us up and make us become negative kind of behavior. We are not a material. We are not a rock. We are not clay for people to build up the statue of us how we are. We have to be our own self, but with our soul, who we truly are. Not by others defining us or following other people’s views or behaviors.

Buddha teaches us to turn inward and learn to be with ourselves, to be with the Buddha nature. The Buddha nature within us knows exactly how to move, how to transform, how to be. No need for us to guide ourselves or make ourselves to be anything. Just return to be one with the Buddha nature, everything will be fine.

How do we return? Just connect to the Buddha nature energy, the compassion energy from the Buddha. Concentrate on the mindful breathing in and out. Adopt the compassion energy from the Buddha through the sacred mantra Mu A Mu Sa. Practice and practice. You will get there. We are all getting there.

We practice and every moment that we practice, every time we are chanting the Mantra Mu  A Mu Sa within the deep breathing technique, we all, no matter who, no matter what kind of religion, will receive and experience this special vibration liberating ourself and breaking down our own learned behavior to return back to the true Buddha nature that is shining up. Our true behavior is very lovely, very compassionate. That is the only way to be peaceful with our life.

Our technique is very simple, and I am very patient to be here every Saturday and practice with you on the YouTube Channel, That Bao Huyen Mao. This scheduled time helps us remain consistently practicing. It is a good condition, a wonderful opportunity, for us to keep connected together and practice together. It motivates us to practice by ourselves. It is good to have a friend like me who can sit down together with you and practice.

This weekend we received a good energy from the Buddha, to look at our own behavior so that whatever behavior is there is not from us, lets remove it. Let’s build our own behavior accordingly to the Buddha within us.

Let’s do seven more mantras of the Mu A Mu Sa. To really look at our behavior deeply and transform it and return home. Put your right hand on your left hand.

May all Buddhas bless us, and all sentient beings be free of suffering and receive compassion energy from all Buddhas in the ten directions.

We just finished 21 times meditating with the Mantra Mu A Mu Sa. Today we looked at our behavior to realize that whatsoever we define who we are or how we behave is not truly who we are. Our behavior is picked up from the outside.

The Buddha guides us toward our own true behavior which is the Buddha nature.  This nature is defined by compassion, by love, by forgiveness, being very lovely, very kind, very mindful, very peaceful. That is how our original behavior was.

Whatever you call yourself, angry, this or that, it is just from outside. It is not the truth of our own behavior. Let’s let go of all of that negative behavior and return back to our true behavior; it is compassion, it is love, it is mindful, peaceful, kind, and forgiving. So, with this positive behavior, we can live happily every single moment of our lives.

May all be blessed, and you can visit us with the Channel, or you can text us if you want to visit us in Frederick, Md. We are here every Saturday on this YouTube channel 11:30 AM eastern time 10:30 Am Central time. You know we welcome you all.  I love to practice with you. Get in touch. Have a nice weekend, make sure you practice every day.

Nam Mo Bon Su Thich Ca Mo Ni Phat,

Mu A Mu Sa

Bye Bye
