How to Make Ourself and Others Happy

"Liberating Prayer is not an ordinary prayer – It is like a text and has profound meaning. All Lamrim teachings – renunciation, bodhichitta, and correct view of emptiness are included in this prayer. I can say very few people understand Liberating Prayer. It definitely needs verbal commentary by a Teacher. If we understand and contemplate its meaning - it is the best method to develop faith in Buddha and his teachings, which is our spiritual life and the root of all Dharma realizations."

Reciting this special prayer while contemplating its meaning draws us closer to Buddha Shakyamuni, who is the Buddha of our world. We understand his many qualities, increase our faith and receive powerful blessings.
"For Buddhists, faith in Buddha Shakyamuni is their spiritual life; it is the root of all Dharma realizations. If we have deep faith in Buddha we shall naturally develop the strong wish to practise his teachings. With this wish we shall definitely apply effort in our Dharma practice, and with strong effort we shall accomplish permanent liberation from the suffering of this life and countless future lives."
