“In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful.”

Wishfulfilling Jewel is a heart practice for Kadampa practitioners. Generally we try to practise either this puja or its shorter version, Heart Jewel, every day. At least once a week we offer these chanted prayers with special tsog offerings at our Kadampa Centres. This is very auspicious because tsog offerings increase our merit and our connection with the holy beings and the enlightened world.
There are two key practices within this puja: reliance on Je Tsongkhapa as our Spiritual Guide and reliance on Dorje Shugden as our Dharma Protector. Both Je Tsongkhapa and Dorje Shugden have the same nature as Buddha Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom. They are both seen to be inseparable from our own Spiritual Guide.
At times when we feel helpless, prayer is incredibly effective for transforming our state of mind. It turns our attention to something positive, spiritual and uplifting, and has the power to shift us out of our worry and negativity.
