Prayer eBooklets

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.
