Sadhanas & Prayers

From Chinese Buddhist Encyclopedia
Jump to navigation Jump to search
0fe.jpg



Performing a sadhana practice is extremely beneficial and helps us overcome mental, physical, and spiritual obstacles. Through a sadhana we are replacing the old patterns and thoughts that we have with new ones. The practitioner is encouraged to see all beings and environments, to hear all sounds, and to experience all thoughts as divine and pure. It is through these practices that we work to attain spiritual realization. Our sadhana practices involves chanting the tantric liturgy, meditation, and chanting of mantras.

Eight Verses of Training The Mind by Kadampa Geshe Langri Tangpa (1054 – 1123)

With the determination to accomplish The highest welfare for all sentient beings Who surpass even a wish-granting jewel I will learn to hold them supremely dear.

Whenever I associate with others I will learn To think of myself as the lowest among all And respectfully hold others to be supreme From the very depths of my heart

In all actions I will learn to search into my mind And as soon as an afflictive emotion arises Endangering myself and others I will firmly face and avert it.

I will learn to cherish all beings of bad nature And those pressed by strong sins and sufferings As if I had found a precious Treasure very difficult to find

When others out of jealousy treat me badly With abuse, slander, and so on, May I suffer the defeat And offer the victory to them

When one whom I have benefited with great hope Unreasonably hurts me very badly, I will learn to view that person As an excellent spiritual guide.

In short, I will learn to offer to everyone without exception All help and happiness directly and indirectly And respectfully take upon myself All harm and suffering of my mothers.

I will learn to keep all these practices Undefiled by the stains of the eight worldly conceptions And by the understanding of all phenomena as like illusions Be released from the bondage of attachment.


The Nine Attitudes of Devotion to the Guru 1. That of a filial child. Like a filial child, one thoroughly carries out the instructions of the Guru without the slightest deviation.

2. That of a Vajra. Like a Vajra that cannot be split apart, even when facing division created by devils or bad associates, one will never split away from the Guru.

3. That of the Earth. Like the Earth carrying everything in the world, one shoulders all assignments ordered by the Guru.

4. That of the Iron Circle of Mountains. Like everlasting mountains, while abiding under the patronage of the Guru one endures hardships and sufferings without ever swaying in one’s determination.

5. That of a servant. Like an obedient servant, even when one is obliged to carry out very difficult assignments one holds no grudges in one’s heart.

6. That of a sweeper. Like a humble sweeper, one renounces self-pride and regards oneself as inferior to the Guru.

7. That of a rope. Like a continuous rope, one rejoices in carrying on the Dharma activities of the Guru, regardless of its degree of difficulty and heaviness of load.

8. That of a domestic dog. Like a loyal dog, even when the Guru ridicules, irritates or ignores one, one never responds with anger.

9. That of a boat. Like a ferry one goes back and forth on the Guru’s assignments without any discontent.

Arrows, spears, swords, and outer, inner, and secret bases,

With these clouds of offerings, both supramundane and worldly,

O Dorje Shugden and all your wrathful entourage,

May your heart commitment be fulfilled, and degeneration restored!

Especially, each accumulated faulty deed of body, speech, and mind

We have committed under the influence of ignorance,

Which goes against your mind, Protector,

We confess with a mind of remorse and regret.

Furthermore, transgressions of our commitments to the Protector and entourage,

And neglect or degeneration of retreat practice, tormas, and offerings, etc.,

We practitioners confess all of these

Within the unobjectifiable emptiness of the three spheres.

O King, great Setrap Chen, and your CHEN entourage!


Just as you have strictly sworn before the lord of power Hayagriva, the wisdom holder Padmasambhawa, the translator Loden Sherab and other holy Gurus, Protect Buddha’s teachings! Raise status of the Supreme Rare Jewels! Protect community of Sangha! Spread the happiness of beings! And especially guard and protect Dharma communities wherever the three realmsking of Dharma Tsongkhapa’s tradition has spread, such as glorious Kechara House.


Proliferate activities of the three wheels of Dharma such as studying the three pitakas and practising the three trainings! And for myself and others pacify non-conducive conditions and obstructions and bring about conducive conditions as we wish!

KANSHAG/KAWANG

An ocean of blood stirred by waves

Flowers of sense organs stacked in mounds

Smoke of burnt flesh gathered like clouds

Lamp of melted human fat, bright as the sun

Perfume of human grease filling vessels

Food to eat of flesh and bones

Various music thundering like a thousand dragons

Sturdy hard vajra armor which protects life

Various weapons which destroy enemies

Clever horse which traverse the billion worlds

Wish fulfilling cow bearing a stream of milk

Baboons, monkeys, cat and cocks

Goats, sheep, drong, yaks, elephants, lions and tigers

A mountain of torma soaring to the sky

Swirling lake of tea and beer to drink

Mount Sumeru, four lands, sun and moon

The seven royal objects and five senses

Thus, all wealth of humans and devas

Actually arranged and mentally envisioned

And blessed into a sky treasure, with this

May Setrap Chen’s heart commitments be fulfilled

May the six emanationsheart commitments be fulfilled

May the infinite entourage’s heart commitments be fulfilled

May you fulfill commitments and restore degeneration!

Dedication for the long life of H.H. the 14th Dalai Lama

GANG RI RAWE KORWAI SHING KHAM DIR PEN DANG DEWA MALU GYUNG WAI NE CHENREZIG WANG TENZIN GYATSO YI SHA PEI SITHAI BARDU DEN GYUR CHIG

In this holy Land surrounded by snow mountains, You are the source of all benefit and happiness May your lotus feet, O powerful Chenrezig, Tenzin Gyatso Remain in this world until the end of existence.

Yonten Shigyurma – The Foundation of All Realisations Well-realising that the root of the path the foundation for every realisation, is to properly rely on my kind Guru, bless me to do so with great effort and devotion.

Knowing that this life of freedom, found but once, is difficult to gain and greatly meaningful bless me to develop the continual wish all day and night to take its essence.

Mindful of death, this life disintegrates as swiftly as a bubble in turbulent water and after death my good and bad karma follows me like my shadow.

Having gained firm certainty of this, bless me to be ever conscientious to abandon even the slightest harm and practice every possible virtue.

Enjoying deceptive samsaric pleasure brings no contentment and is the door to all suffering. aware of its drawbacks, bless me to develop a strong wish for the bliss of liberation.

With mindfulness, introspection, and great care induced by that pure aspiration bless me to make my essential practice the Pratimoksha, root of Buddha’s teachings.

Just as I’ve fallen in this sea of suffering so have all beings, my kind mothers; seeing this, bless me to train in Bodhicitta, taking up the burden of liberating them.

And yet, just wishing this, without practicing the three ethics, Enlightenment cannot be attained. knowing this well, please bless me to intensively strive to train in the Bodhisattva vows.

Properly analysing the correct object and pacifying distraction to mistaken objects bless me to swiftly realise the path which unifies quiescence and special insight.

When I’m a pure vessel, trained in common paths, bless me to enter with perfect ease the sacred gateway of fortunate ones, the supreme of vehicles, Vajrayana.

Then, foundation for the two attainments is keeping the pure vows and commitments. having found unfeigned conviction in this bless me to guard them with my life.

Having precisely understood the essentials of the two stages, heart of the tantras, bless me to strive without break in four sessions to practice Yoga as taught by holy Masters.

May the spiritual guides who reveal this excellent path and the friends who practice it all live long. Please grant blessings that outer and inner hindrances all be fully pacified.

In all lives may I never be parted from perfect Masters and enjoy the glory of Dharma. Perfecting realisations of the paths and stages, may I swiftly gain the state of Vajradhara.


(At this point, one may also add other auspicious dedication prayers. These prayers may include: A Prayer for The Beginning, Middle and End, Praise to Vajrayogini, The King of Prayers and Shantideva’s Dedication Prayer)
