Prayers

Prayers are special methods for generating positive states of mind and can be used as a basis for successful meditation on any of the stages of the path to enlightenment. Tharpa Publications provides a wide range of Buddhist prayers in printed, ebook and audio format.

Buddhist prayers are often referred to as 'sadhanas', which means 'ritual prayers for spiritual attainments'. A sadhana is practised by reciting the verses and deeply contemplating their meaning. Through regular practise a sadhana acts as a method for attaining realizations that enable us to progress along our spiritual path.

  1. How to Solve Our Human Problems - Audiobook 2018
    In this busy world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and short-lived, while inner peace eludes us completely. Our negative states of mind, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems for ourselves and others, and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Geshe Kelsang begins by presenting Buddha's popular teaching on the Four Noble Truths, which offers a clear and simple solution to all our problems, guiding us to an oasis of peace within our hearts. He then focuses in particular on overcoming the problem of anger, learning how to develop and maintain patience when faced with even the most difficult circumstances. Learn More
