Description

Back of the Book

"Life is very busy, especially for those living in the West. Many people reject rituals because they do not understand the purpose and meaning of ritual. Done correctly, the following practices are not mere ritual: they are meditation. Without meditation, ritual becomes like a hollow orange - skin on the outside, empty inside. Each of these preliminary practices contains the entire path to enlightenment."

This practice booklet is an easy to use method for those wishing to establish a daily meditation practice. Written by Lama Zopa Rinpoche for use by beginning students, it is a clearly outlined practice complete with guided meditations for developing one's motivation, the mind of refuge, and the thought of bodhichitta. In addition, the practice contains mantra recitation and visualization based on Shakyamuni Buddha and a Lamrim prayer in the form of a request for blessings to develop all the realizations on the path to full awakening. It contains everything one needs for a complete daily practice.

Introduction

Life is very busy, especially for those living in the West. Many people say, therefore, that it is difficult to find the time during a busy day for a regular meditation practice. In this case, the best solution is to get up earlier each morning. Early rising is a good habit to develop; it follows the example of all the practitioners who have attained the path. And because it is very quiet, early morning is also a good time to meditate.

In this way you will be able to do your practice. If you put off your practice until the very end of the day, you might forget it completely, because you are distracted by television or something else or because you are too tired, especially if you have children. The best time to find peace and quiet for practice is generally after the children have gone to bed or before they awaken in the morning and demand your attention.

Many people reject rituals because they do not understand the purpose and meaning of ritual. Done correctly, the following practices are not mere ritual: they are meditation. Without meditation, ritual becomes like a hollow orange- skin on the outside, empty inside.

Each of these preliminary practices contains the entire path to enlightenment. If you understand the meaning behind them, the rituals taught by the Buddha are actually not separate from the entire path to enlightenment. Of course, one needs purification and a large collection of merit to be able to have faith in and to understand this.

While this meditation is based on Shakyamuni Buddha, it can be adapted to suit other practices by altering the visualization and the mantra recitation.

Fotis, Greece
I received the statue today, and it is beautiful! Worth the wait! Thank you so much, blessings, Kimberly.
Kimberly, USA
I received the Green Tara Thangka described below right on schedule. Thank you a million times for that. My teacher loved it and was extremely moved by it. Although I have seen a lot of Green Tara thangkas, and have looked at other Green Tara Thangkas you offer and found them all to be wonderful, the one I purchased is by far the most beautiful I have ever seen -- or at least it is the one that most speaks to me.
John, USA
Your website store is a really great place to find the most wonderful books and artifacts from beautiful India. I have been traveling to India over the last 4 years and spend 3 months there each time staying with two Bengali families that I have adopted and they have taken me in with love and generosity. I love India. Thanks for doing the business that you do. I am an artist and, well, I got through I think the first 6 pages of the book store on your site and ordered almost 500 dollars in books... I'm in trouble so I don't go there too often.. haha.. Hari Om and Hare Krishna and Jai.. Thanks a lot for doing what you do.. Great !
Steven, USA
