INTRODUCTION

To be awake is the ultimate goal for those fortunate enough to follow the Buddha – the Awakened One. The Buddha taught myriad ways to wake up because we get confused in a myriad ways.

One of the most popular and cherished methods of waking up is dhyāna – sometimes translated as mindfulness. This is a way to train one’s mind not to be distracted by the infinite distractions that constantly tempt us.

While Buddhism encourages charity and other ordinary means of accumulating virtue and merit, its most diligent efforts are directed towards bringing us to the truth. And to that end, the most supreme method to accumulate merit is to remember the Buddha, Dharma and Sangha, as we do in this sadhana.
