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.

HOW TO TAKE PART IN PRAYERS

Chanted prayers are special methods for purifying negativity, accumulating merit and receiving blessings. They help us to develop and maintain a positive mind and are a powerful preparation for meditation. Everyone is welcome to attend all chanted prayers at Vajrapani KBC, except those that require a Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerment; these are clearly marked above.  There is no need to book, and no fee.
