Daily Prayers and Meditation at Bodhichitta Kadampa Buddhist Center
Our main daily puja, (or chanted prayers) at Bodhichitta Kadampa Buddhist Center is Heart Jewel, which is a Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa combined with the condensed sadhana of his Dharma Protector and a short mediation on Lamrim.
This puja includes two practices revealed by the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri. The first is a special Guru yoga in which we visualize our Spiritual Guide as Je Tsongkhapa, who himself is a manifestation of Manjushri.
The second practice is a method for relying upon the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. Through this, we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our Dharma realizations.
The Center holds regular sessions of chanted prayers, or pujas, which are often combined with meditation, visualization and mantra recitation (see the weekly calendar for details).
