Walking the Diamond Path

Home / Walking the Diamond Path

Master your daily sadhana in two days

For budding spiritual seekers, mastering Tibetan Buddhist prayers can be an uphill battle. From the complex visualisations to the rituals and mudras, the many components that make up a daily sadhana or prayer can be intimidating for the uninitiated.

But in the words of His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche,

“To progress spiritually, daily sadhana is important. These recitations and meditations will purify the vast amounts of negative karma accumulated in this life and past lives. It also allows us to generate the merits necessary to support our spiritual practice.”

Walking the Diamond Path is a detailed commentary on how to invoke two forms of the Wisdom Buddha Manjushri – the yidam Lama Tsongkhapa and the protector Dorje Shugden – through the Diamond Path daily sadhana. Based on an infallible lineage transmitted by His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche and compiled in the form of a concise daily prayer by His Eminence Tsem Rinpoche, the Diamond Path is a powerful spiritual method to remove your outer obstacles and problems, and begin cultivating your inner qualities and Buddhanature.
