Would you be offended if they gave you some CDs to help you out?

  1. The best advice I can offer is to discover what the Bible says about meditation. Consider these verses:
    The Bible says to meditate on the Word of God. Psalm 1:2 says, “But his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night.” Psalm 119:97 says. “Oh, how I love your law! I meditate on it all day long.” Joshua 1:8 reads, “Do not let this Book of the Law depart from your mouth; meditate on it day and night, so that you may be careful to do everything written in it. Then you will be prosperous and successful.”
    The Bible says to meditate on Jesus. Hebrews 12:2-3 reads, “Let us fix our eyes on Jesus, the author and perfecter of our faith, who for the joy set before him endured the cross, scorning its shame, and sat down at the right hand of the throne of God. Consider him who endured such opposition from sinful men, so that you will not grow weary and lose heart.”
    The Bible says to meditate on things that are pleasing to God. Psalm 19:14 says, “May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O LORD, my Rock and my Redeemer.”
    The Bible says to meditate on eternal things. Colossians 3:2 reads, “Set your minds on things above, not on earthly things.”
    Philippians 4:8 says, “Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable – if anything is excellent or praiseworthy – think about such things.”
    As Buddhism is centred around meditation, their advice on it is usually from extensive experience and is very good at helping.
    Namaste.

  2. I would not be offended. I will simply tell Him that we do our meditation differently from theirs and that because of what I believe in, I can not have the CD.
