Samantabhadra’s Aspiration Prayer for the Excellent
Conduct of the Noble Ones

Khenpo Gawang will explain Samantabhadra’s Aspiration Prayer for the Excellent Conduct of the Noble Ones
based on the commentary by the renowned Nyingma master Lochen Dharmashri.

This famous prayer contains an elaborate presentation of the 7-branch offering for accumulating merit and purifying obscurations and many beautiful aspirations to aid in the cultivation of the altruistic mind of Bodhicitta. This prayer is practiced extensively by all Tibetan dharma traditions and its recitation is the centerpiece of the large prayer festivals conducted each year in India by the 4 main Tibetan traditions.

Khenpo was asked by Garchen Rinpoche to translate this commentary. It has been published and will be available at the teachings.

These teachings are suitable for beginning students & more experienced practitioners a like.
