Tonglen, an old Vajrayana Buddhist compassion practice, can give profound relief to the suffering of psycho-emotional battering. This is meditation practice which done in conjunction with breathing, helpful in opening the heart and aim to move towards altruism. It involves compassion for self, compassion for others-- reminds me of Avalokiteshvara and Archangel Zadkiel. From one of my gurus i have learnt that this is one effective way to balance oneself during Rahu/Ketu Mahadasha.
The essence of Tonglen is:
|Avalokiteshvara means- one who looks down|
upon others with compassion
Om Mani Padme Hum
- Breathe in all the suffering of all people on Earth who are feeling your same pain, including yourself. Be specific. For example, if you have the pain of loneliness, abandonment, or rejection from a lover, say "I breathe in the terrible pain of all those who suffer emotional rejection from a lover."
- Breathe out full healing of all those people's pain, including your own. Say, "As I breathe out, may all those who suffer this pain, including myself, receive full healing acceptance from their beloved."
Compassion to all :)
