Seven Branch Prayer, Part 2 – The Why and How of Accumulating Merit
This week’s Dharma Talk is entitled Seven Branch Prayer, Part 2 – The Why and How of Accumulating Merit by Cathy Lhamo Jackson.
In many of our Sadhana liturgies there is a special prayer insert, called the Seven Branch. This prayer varies in words but the meaning and purpose is the same – to accumulate further merit and blessings. The Seven Branches include: Prostrations, Offerings, Confession, Rejoicing, Request Buddhas continue Teaching, Buddhas not yet enter into Nirvana, and Dedication.
