Developing the Mind Through Sadhana Practice

SADHANAS (Skt.) or pujas (Tib.) are chanted practices that embody the essence of the Buddhist path, from the taking of refuge and engendering of loving-kindness and compassion through the accumulation of merit and the completion stages of the practice, culminating in the dedication of merit to the benefit of all sentient beings as numerous as the sky is vast. Each is rich, complete, profound and vast.

There are many teachings on sadhana practice for practitioners who have the necessary blessings and permission to actually engage in the practice. The teachings shown here illustrate some of the profound aspects that apply to all of the practices.
