Tibetan Prayers Lam Rim Meditation


Tibetan Prayers with English Translations (print)
The Mandala Refuge Dedication All Three Prayers


Tibetan Prayers (audio)
The Mandala Refuge Dedication All Three Prayers


The Mandala Mudra (youTube video)
Palopilus demonstrates how to do the Mandala Mudra on YouTube. This is a clear demonstration of the way to hold your hands (mudra) when saying the Mandala prayer. When you get to the last line of the prayer just fold your hands in, down, up and around into a "standard" prayer posture.


Five Point Prostration (youTube video)
Simple demonstration of Tibetan Buddhist Five Point Prostration I use the Zen Buddhist prostration method myself, but this is very similar to that method.


Full Prostration (youTube video)
Part one explaining the way the hands are held for prostration and Part two showing the full prostration This is quite detailed and interesting. For those who would like more information on the depth of symbolism surrounding prostrations.
