Buddhist Prayers and Practices

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

This book is a compilation of prayers and practices that are commonly taught to people beginning to study and practice Buddhism of the Tibetan tradition. These prayers and practices are designed to elevate our mind by directing our thoughts toward loftier subjects such as the determination to be free from all problems, the heart dedicated to attaining enlightenment for the benefit of all beings, and the wisdom realizing things as they are. Since our mind, with its various thoughts and emotions, creates and determines what we experience in life, directing it toward realistic and worthwhile subjects is extremely beneficial. Using Pearl of Wisdom, Book I as a basis, and complementing it with instruction from a qualified teacher, one can do this.
