Tharpa Publications Prayers Words of Wisdom

Prayers are special methods for generating positive states of mind, and can also be used as preparation for successful meditation on any of the stages of the path to enlightenment.


Our Printed Prayers include sadhanas, vows and commitments, Words of Wisdom, and a child's prayer. Our Audio Prayers include sadhanas and other prayers on CD and downloadable MP3 formats.


Sadhana, literally means "method for attainment" and contains sets of particular prayers in verse form. A sadhana is practised by reciting the verses and contemplating their meaning. Reciting and contemplating a sadhana over time acts as a method for attaining the realizations of a specific Buddha or Buddhist practice.
