Prayer Books & BOOKLETS

On this page you will find the newest translation of our daily Prayer Book  as well as the five booklets most frequently distributed
by H.E. Garchen Rinpoche.

Regarding the Five Booklets

Garchen Rinpoche said: “These five booklets are very important. I myself constantly rely on them as my practice. As I have gained some positive experiences, I print these booklets and distribute them to the students.”

“Among the five booklets, before I entered the labor camp, Lama Chime Dorje had taught me The Ganges Mahamudra and The Thirty-Seven Bodhisattvas’ Practices. The Samantabhadra’s Prayer was something that I memorized secretly in the labor camp. As The Supplication to the Seven Taras is related to the ultimate truth, I also printed it after I went overseas.”

“The Sukhavati Prayer was something that I had memorized even before I entered the labor camp. Nowadays there are some people who are interested in the Dharma but have not received any empowerment or oral transmission. Such a person only needs to study and contemplate The Sukhavati Prayer, as well as visualize Buddha Amitabha and the Sukhavati Pure Land. When he/she passes away, it is 100% without a doubt that he/she will take birth in Sukhavati. Once in Sukhavati, he/she will be able to practice continuously, without birth or death, until buddhahood is attained. Therefore, it is very important.”
