Paths and Aspirations of the Enlightened Ones is a book of Buddhist liturgies drawn from the Kanjpur and Tanjur, the two major Tibetan Buddhist canons containing the collection of Buddha’s teaching and their commentaries by Indian masters repetitively. Containing prayers exclusively of the Sutrayana Tradition, this book serves as a recitation manual for all pilgrims to the holy places. It can be read at important Buddhist religious ceremonies and also a daily reading practice for interested individuals. Structured and arranged in accordance with the standard stages of meditation, the prayers, composed in verse form, explain and guide us in the practice of taking refuge, generating the Bodhi-mind, making offering and praises, recitation of Buddha Shakymuni Mantra and mantra more.
