Laughing Buddha / Smiling Yoga MeditationMon, May 7, 2007 - 8:41 PM
Breathe and smile.
Be happy, be peaceful
Let's practice the smiling yoga.
Smile. Smile even more. Smile as if you were enlightened.
Happy, blissful, delighted.
A happy camper on the shore of nirvana's shining sea.
Smile. Grin. Be silly
Breathing in. Relax your mind.
Breathing out, smile, smile, smile,
Buddhas have more fun.
So try to look as enlightened as you can.
Why pretend to be unhappy, harried, and miserable?
Since we all pretend anyway,
Why not pretend to be happy for a change?
See how that feels.
Try to look and act as if you are totally enlightened.
What would that look like?
Free, joyful, light, and buoyant.
Glorious, radiant, peaceful.
Perfectly content and fulfilled.
You too can do it.
Be Buddha. You-dha.
Smile wildly, turn your head upward, elevate your spirit.
Let the mind unfurl and the heart soar.
Press your shining face up against the heavens,
Open to blessings, loving acceptance and forgiveness.
Look as enlightened as you possibly can.
Why not be happy?
Allow joy to happen.
Don't close yourself up.
Be "there" now.
Be happy. Be peaceful. Be whole, complete, luminous;
Be at home and at ease before your own hearth
An organic homegrown American Home-Buddha in his or her own,
Smile, Home Buddha.
Be yourself, your true self.
Enjoy it. You deserve it.
-Lama Surya Das
