What is prayer?
Prayer starts when one leaves the temple. The prayer houses, meditation exercises, ritual prayers etc are ‘dojos’, internal/external training rooms. The practical application of the ‘beliefs’, based on faith, at any given moment both internally and externally in all dealings, ( to the best of one’s ability) is what constitutes real practice. And at any given moment one expresses through his being his knowledge/faith (though we all know better.)
