Buddhist is very devotional and meditative. Buddhist prayer is to awaken our inherent inner capacities of strength, compassion and wisdom rather than to petition external forces based on fear, idolizing, and worldly and/or heavenly gain. Buddhist prayer is a form of meditation; it is a practice of inner reconditioning. Buddhist prayer replaces the negative with the virtuous and points us to the blessings of Life.
Prayer should be part of our spiritual journey, transforming confusion into clarity and suffering into joy. Our daily life is full of positive and negative motivations. Positive motivation is a response which includes enjoyment and optimism about the tasks that you are involved in. Negative motivation involves undertaking tasks because there will be undesirable outcomes. Meditation and prayers brings Strength and all good deeds to face any situations in life.
Specifically Buddhist prayer can helps a person to develop his or her mind, his or her good heart. Or, it is an expression of a positive motivation regarding the needs of this world. Spiritual growth is the process through which our soul becomes conscious, and therefore more dominant on the earth plane.
