Prayer Booklets and Audio
Meditation 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, e-book, and audio format.
Buddhist prayers are often referred to as ‘sadhanas’, which means ‘ritual prayers for spiritual attainments’. A sadhana is practiced by reciting the verses while deeply contemplating their meaning. Through regular practice a sadhana acts as a method for attaining realizations that enable us to progress along our spiritual path.
The booklets for all of the meditation prayers we schedule can be purchased here at KMC Chicago through a contactless pick up. If you have any questions, or would like to arrange a pick-up time, please e-mail us at email@example.com or call 312-767-1898.
