This Prayer Service is free of charge
Heart Jewel Prayer is the heart of Kadampa Buddhism. In the first part we visualize our Spiritual Guide and make prayers and requests to purify negativity, accumulate merit and receive blessings. This prepares our mind for a twenty-minute meditation on the stages of the path to enlightenment. After the meditation we make prayers to our Dharma Protector. Through this we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favorable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our pure Dharma realizations.
For more information, we recommend the book Heart Jewel, The Essential Practices of Kadampa Buddhism.
