Clean your mind while cleaning your room: meditate while vacuuming!

From Electrolux, hat tip The Worst Horse


"Our quietest vacuum cleaner ever makes it possible to turn a routine household chore into a moment of calm. Train your brain while you are vacuuming with the first meditation program developed for vacuum cleaning."

Q:  Why can't a Bodhisattva vacuum under the sofa?
A:   Because she has no attachments.

Seriously though, this kind of housework meditation does have a long history in Buddhism...
