In Buddhism prayers are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help us to still our mind, connect with enlightened beings, and receive blessings. All our prayer sessions are sung in English and are open to everyone to come along and join in, or you can just sit and listen if you wish. Prayers are an excellent way to open our heart and connect with something beyond ourself.
By relying upon Je Tsongkhapa, our compassion, wisdom and spiritual power naturally increase.
Offering to the Spritual Guide can be practiced privately every day, but there are two special days of each month - 10th and 25th - when it is recited together with making a tsog offering.
This practice is explained further in the book Great Treasury of Merit.
This prayer session is based on the Prayer Books Offering to the Spiritual Guide.
