Teaching on the Seven-Limb Prayer
Teacher: His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin Ratna Vajra Rinpoche,
Venue: United States,
Year: 2017

His Holiness the 42nd Sakya Trizin, Ratna Vajra Rinpoche, bestowed this teaching on May 19, 2018 in Minneapolis, Minnesota, at the request of Sakya Thupten Dargye Ling (the Minnesota Sakya Center for Buddhist Studies and Meditation).

The seven limbs practice is a powerful method to purify all our non-virtuous actions, which is the obstacle of liberation and enlightenment. In this teaching, His Holiness explains these seven limbs based on the seven-limb prayer extracted from the Samantabhadra Prayer, an aspiration prayer. Moreover, His Holiness also provides a step-by-step instruction on how to truly practice the Dharma, which we may have often overlooked.
