Daily Recitation with Accompanying Mala & Key

In this way I do most deeply vow to train myself.

With this recurring line from the Daily Recitation, we focus our intention to follow the path of liberation blazed 2,500 years ago by Siddhartha Gautama, Shakyamuni Buddha. Counting off the verses on a mala, or string of beads, we renew our dedication to the teachings and methods of this great mindfulness path.

The Daily Recitation is usually recited prior to the first sitting meditation of the day. According to Buddhist teaching, anyone may become a Buddhist simply by saying aloud that they take refuge in the Three Treasures: Buddha (the truth of existence), Dharma (the teachings), and Sangha (the community of practitioners).

For use as part of your daily practice, we offer the Daily Recitation printed as a 4.25" x 5.5" folded booklet with an accompanying mala and Key. The Daily Recitation, printed on a 4.25" x 5.5"card, includes:

  • The Three Treasures
  • The Four Noble Truths
  • The Three Characteristics of Existence
  • Heart Sutra (very concise)
  • The Eightfold Path
  • The Three Pure and the Ten Great Precepts
  • The Paramitas
  • 11 Statements of Commitment to Training

Mala & Key

The mala is about 26 inches long and strung on waxed linen or waxed polyester thread. Each line of the Daily Recitation corresponds to exactly one of 67 beads, composed as follows:

  • Fifty-five 12-mm walnut-stained wooden beads, used for the Teachings.
  • Three 14-mm glass or stone beads representing the Dharma, Sangha, and Buddha.
  • Eleven 8-mm marker beads separating major portions of the Recitation made of semi-precious stones, for example moss agate, tree agate or snowflake obsidian.

The Recitation ends with the Key, which is represented by a pendant.

For an illustrated guide to the mala's structure, please click here.

If your Sangha has a pendant that you want to tie onto the end of the mala, we can send your mala without a pendant. If you'd like our Sangha's pendant on your mala, we can send your mala with one. You can see our Sangha's pendant on most pages of this website and in the online picture of the mala.

Willingness is the name of the key to the gate of awakening.

Tibetan Book of the Dead

In 2007, Nancy Spence wrote The Tibetan Book of the Dead: An Adaptation for Reading Aloud to the Dead and published it on Lulu.

This book is designed to read aloud to a person who has died, guiding the deceased through the 49-day death bardo.

It provides mindful, compassionate, and clear words of encouragement and direction for the deceased.

The book is a paperback 43 pages long.

We have decided to offer this book on our "goods" page, but with the hope that you will use it as a chance to donate to the Sangha.

The cost of the book is $13. Any amount you enter above that will be a tax-deductible gift.
