Lead-through of the Going for Refuge and Prostration Practice

by Subhuti

The Going for Refuge and Prostration Practice is one of the four 'mula yogas' (foundational practices) of the Tibetan tradition, and some experience of the meditation is seen as an essential element in the life of any member the Western Buddhist Order. Here Subhuti leads us through the practice in a simple, easygoing way - with all the usual elements, including an evocation of the Refuge Tree of the WBO. This was recorded on a tape recorder high in the Spanish mountains - listen for the wind rushing through the shrine room!

Please note that some small noise artefacts can be heard occasionally on this talk due to a poor original recording.

Recorded at Guhyaloka Retreat Centre, 1992
