The Aspiration of Samantabhadra
“The Aspiration of Samantabhadra”, called “the King of Prayers” is traditionally said on behalf of deceased persons during the 49 days after they pass away, as well as in many other situations. Some find it helpful to recite this prayer when they feel the need to revitalize their Dharma practice. This is the most frequently used prayer by Buddhists from Tibet.
Sonam Dorje is a Tibetan Buddhist monk and scholar. Sonam was born in Tibet and ordained a monk at the age of 5. Sonam has studied all 4 schools of Tibetan Buddhism and has had all the major empowerments. He is a scholar of both Buddhism and Physics.
