Heart Jewel Prayers & Meditation
The daily puja at Kadampa Buddhist Centers is Heart Jewel, which is a Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa combined with the condensed sadhana of his Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden. It includes 20 minutes of meditate on Lamrim and 10 minutes of silence to engage in Vajrayana meditation. During the Lamrim meditation, the presider will introduce the Lamrim object of meditation along with the contemplation, then the remainder of the time is in silence.
By engaging in the special Guru yoga practised in conjunction with Je Tsongkhapa we can purify our negativity, accumulate merit, receive blessings, and attain a very special wisdom. By engaging in the special method for relying upon Dorje Shugden we can overcome obstacles to our practice and create favourable conditions so that we can nurture and increase our spiritual realizations.
If we practise this puja regularly and sincerely, we will reap a rich harvest of pure Dharma realizations, and eventually come to experience the supreme joy of full enlightenment. For a more extensive explanation of this practice, see the book Heart Jewel.
