As a result of practicing prayer, we begin to discover who we really are.
 
                                                                                 -- Senpai Sensei

Many Buddhist prayers involve self-reflection, including a sometimes painful confrontation with our own deeply-rooted destructive tendencies.  As a result of practicing prayer, we begin to discover who we really are. We recognize our inherent foolish nature (shadow side) at the same time awakening ourselves to the working of Great Compassion, symbolized as Amida Buddha. In essence, prayer practice is a process by which our intensely felt desires and sufferings are transformed into compassion and wisdom.

It is not heard at all
And you are the music
While the music lasts."
