The Path of Dharma

This meditation build on the same principles as the Christian Icon-contemplations and the Budhist tangha contemplations. The ressonance between a arcetypical figure painted from a high guidance, and the deeper wisdom of our mind.
The two ways to use them we recommend is written under each individual picture.

These pictures are representations of enlightened beings, each having reached his or her goal via the path described, so this is archetypes or entities that has become one with their goal, with higher consciousness or God.
If these pictures are chosen as a basis for self development, we recommend that all pictures are used for a time, so that it is not just like-dislike that governs, but that all can do their work.

As a rule of thumb it is imperative in a meditative praxis, to build up regularity and some duration, but don’t overdo it, start for example with 5 or 10 minutes daily, sit relaxed, be aware of your spine, and work with the instruction given.

If the chakra-related instruction are used, go through all the 20 symbols, fore example over one week, so that the balance between the chakras are maintained.
