The ideal Buddhist prayer is wishing to use the collected good energy which was created by good actions for other’s benefit.
I would like to talk about the mechanism of prayer in Buddhism. First, I would like to talk about Karma. Karma means Action. In Buddhism, energy occurs by action. Good energy comes from good action. Bad energy comes from bad action. Good energy brings happiness and bad energy brings unhappiness. The ideal Buddhist prayer is wishing to use the collected good energy which was created by good actions for other’s benefit. This is called “EKO”. Many Buddhist is wishing for all the people get the good energy they created at good action.
The good energy stays with you as well. The sutra indicates that you can only EKO one/seventh of energy. The most of the good energy stays with you. The most important point is many people in the world are doing EKO. We are receiving the good energy coming from someone’s EKO. Our happiness increases and unhappiness decreases by some stranger’s prayer. When we feel it our appreciation will be born because of it. The Buddhism teaching is to connect and relate one another and appreciate one another. As you continue EKO, you can feel the good energy of Karma more and more. Thank you.
