Lately, I've been reading up on the four schools of Mahayana. It's very interesting. I also learned that the next Buddha (Maitreya) will materialize only when the Buddhist teachings (dharma) have dissapeared from the world. It seems to me that that is going to be a LONG time from now. Of course, my texts could be wrong-or I interpreted them wrong.
Anyway, I've tried a little meditation recently-focusing on my breathing. I did it for approx. 10 minutes. Not much time, but for me, it was alot. It also made me feel pretty good when I was finished.
