I just increased the gain on my practice. I have to do 100 000 mantras of Vajrasattva, a 100 syllable mantra.
Now I remember why I was blowing it off. The purification process (Vajrasattva is a shower that wipes your karma) can make me feel like shit!
It's quite the opposite of what you think, you know. You think meditation makes you into a floaty pod person. That's only if you're not doing it right!
