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 info@meditateinchicago.org or call 312-767-1898.

We also feature guided meditation CDs and download cards to help you continue your meditation practice at home.

Our bookstore holds great gifts for children, including four Buddhist books especially written for children.

Other offerings include Buddhist statues and prints, malas (prayer beads), meditation and shrine supplies, incense, candles and various gifts.
