Meditation is traditionally likened to sowing good seeds in our mind. But for these seeds to grow they need the rain and sunlight of the blessings of Enlightened Beings. Blessings are the transforming influence an enlightened mind has on an unenlightened mind, lifting it out of itself and infusing it with light and inspiration. One of the best ways of receiving blessings is to chant prayers together in a group.
We do a number of chanted prayers (or pujas) on a regular basis. Everyone is welcome to attend these prayers and they free of charge. Please note that while Songs of Enlightenment and Prayers for World Peace are at fixed times during term times, the times of the other chanted prayers may vary as they need to fit round the regular meditation classes, so please check the online calender.
Booklets and CDs of these prayers are available from Tharpa Publications.
