Bear in mind too that there may well be a distinct difference between repetitive PRAYER in order to atempt to supplicate God and get him to give you something, or so as to appear righteous before people and, on the other hand, meditative repetition to clear and focus the mind of frivolous distractions, 'purifying' it. There is a difference that the post you quoted does not identify. Jesus was talking about people imagining they will get things from God or be heard by him by babbling on repetitively, whereas this is NOT what is described above.
dominicus, thus far you've only proven how immature you are. So again, with feeling, prove it to me.
The philosophy espoused is diametrically opposed to that spoken of by Jesus, specifically where he spoke of the 'heathen' who prayed incorrectly through "vain repetition" (Matthew 6:7)
