“What does Buddho mean? Is it a plural of Buddha, and is there a mention of such breathing technique in the Tripitika?”
– Buddho is actually singular. It refers to the Buddha.
– Not everything is in the Tipitaka. Various meditation techniques can be used as long as they are consistent with the Tipitaka.
“I tried it this morning during my meditation (1hour duration) and it seemed to help.”
– Yes. It is fine to use that to calm the mind.
– Buddha comes from “bhava” + uddha” OR “stopping suffering-filled rebirth”.
