Chanted 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.

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.

 

Please note that the Chanted Prayers sessions are for FREE and you can borrow the prayer booklet from the meditation room or purchase your own copy from our book shop.
