Why is this meditation beneficial for me and my dog?
“Om Mani Padme Hum” is the Buddhist mantra of compassion. “Om Mani Puppy Hum” is a meditation in which you connect consciously with this compassion through a beautiful heart meditation with your dog. If there are one or two words in which to describe a dog, for me it would be: compassion and unconditional love. Whatever our hair looks like, whether we have doggie breath, lots or no money in the bank; it is all the same to our wise canine companions. They hold the key to the secret of life: loving unconditionally and accepting ourselves and others as we are.
We, as humans, might tell other people that we love them. But that love is often not unconditional; it is a love that is obscured by conditioning, it is a contract that comes with a fine print: I love you, BUT…some conditions apply. For example, when the person we say we love does not meet our expectations we blame them and feel like they have let us down. Dogs are quite the opposite – they are the embodiment of unconditional love, no contracts and no fine print other than the paw prints they leave on our hearts.
The good and beautiful news is: we DO have this component of unconditional love inside of us too! Our true nature is like that; we all stem from the same source. All forms are simply different expressions of the formless, of the divine. Through conditioning we’ve simply forgotten how to live and breathe that kind of love.
"Outside ideas of right doing and wrong doing there is a field. I will meet you there."
- Rumi -
