Buddhist Practice Materials

Thrangu Rinpoche's centers a number of practices and in this section we have grouped all the materials to do the practice together.

We offer the practice text in Tibetan script, transliteration, and English along with guidance which gives the visualization, mudras, music, and explanation of Dharma terms in a box on the right. These are in PDF form and free.

Next, if they are available we include books and commentaries on these practices which are not all by Thrangu Rinpoche. For many paractices we also have photos of the deities of the practice and an auditory download of a group doing the practice to provide the tune and pronounciation.
