and helps them on their journey to their next life.

Prayer
the key to all treasures of this life and the hereafter, the universal language

“Prayer is not asking. It is a longing of the soul. It is daily admission of one’s weakness.
It is better in prayer to have a heart without words than words without a heart.”
Mahatma Gandhi

“When we finally know we are dying, and all other sentient beings are dying with us, we start to have a burning, almost heartbreaking sense of the fragility and preciousness of each moment and each being, and from this can grow a deep, clear, limitless compassion for all beings.”
Sogyal Rinpoche

OM MANI PADME HUM
“the precious jewel within the lotus”

“It is also mentioned in the tantras that by reciting this mantra you achieve the four qualities of
being born in the Amitabha Buddha pure land and other pure lands; at the time of death,
seeing Buddha and lights appearing in the sky; the devas making you offerings;
and never being reborn in the hell, hungry ghost or animals realms.
You will be reborn in the pure land of Buddha or as a happy transmigratory being.”
Lama Zopa Rinpoche
