In Buddhism, and especially in Tibetan Buddhism, there are numerous sadhana (instructions for practice) for a wide range of meditations, visualizations, guru yogas and deity yogas. People are very busy nowadays and so I would like to offer some prayer books of varying lengths that you can use to begin or maintain a daily practice. These prayer books present authentic Buddhist meditations, visualizations, deity yoga, and guru yogas that are from a tradition that is over 2600 years old. I hope these prayer books will be beneficial for you and all living beings. Feel free to download and make your own copy of these prayer books. If you enjoy them and find them beneficial and would like support the creation of future prayer books please click the link below to make a donation. Losang Samten
Cave Temples In 386 the Northern Wei dynasty was declared by the Tuoba, a nomadic people from the north. As it consolidated power in north China during the fifth century, this non-Han dynasty found it beneficial to associate themselves with the burgeoning popularity of Buddhism. Despite this, the Northern Wei emperor Taiwu (r. 424-452) was persuaded by Daoist and Confucian officials at court to curb the Buddhist church. This persecution of Buddhism, begun in 446, lasted until his death in 452. Taiwu's grandson, Wencheng (r. 452-465) succeeded him and reinstated Buddhism to its previous, eminent position. One of the ways in which he made up for his grandfather's actions was by commissioning the excavation of some of the enormous caves at Yungang.

“A smile is an inexpensive way to improve your looks” Charles Gordy I love the idea that smiling is used as a healing and meditation practice by many ancient cultures. Taoists believe that holding a smile on your face and directing it inwards towards your organs and inner body, is the key to good health and longevity. Traditional Balinese healers know that a smile washes away bad energy and recommend smiling meditation as a simple way to calm the mind and bring health to the soul.

Lojong (Tib. བློ་སྦྱོང་, Wylie : blo sbyong ) is a mind training practice in the Tibetan Buddhist tradition based on a set of aphorisms formulated in Tibet in the 12th century by Geshe Chekhawa . The practice involves refining and purifying one's motivations and attitudes. The fifty-nine or so slogans that form the root text of the mind training practice are designed as a set of antidotes to undesired mental habits that cause suffering.
