The practice of the sadhana of the Recollection of the Noble Three Jewels (Triratna Anusmriti Sadhana) offers us the opportunity to continuously remember who we really are and to celebrate this precious life. This sadhana gives us a base to practice together, to help us rediscover our emotional resilience and purify our perspective.
At times in our lives, we have all felt burdened by disturbing emotions, In many of those moments we have either looked outside of ourselves for help or have felt hopelessly alone and unsupported. The psychological and emotional upheaval that so many are currently experiencing, brought on by the pandemic, is not something new.
As we emerge from the pandemic, we will constantly face a range of emotions, many of which we experience as negative — fear, loss of purpose, loss of confidence, lack of clarity, insecurity, aggression, failure, clinging, and so many more.
By practicing this sadhana, we can create a common space for a disciplined group practice where people from diverse backgrounds connect in the endeavor of calming our internal turmoil.
Many of us associate sadhana practice with tangible and material outcomes, or we regard it as mere ritual. We don’t necessarily think of obtaining psychological support when we think of a sadhana or puja in daily life.
The sadhana of the Recollection of the Noble Three Jewels acts as an antidote to our stubborn habits and negative emotions that harm ourselves and others. By combining psychology and ritual including the use of mudras and chants, the sadhana bolsters mental discipline, which in turn enhances mindfulness.
The support and fellowship of a group practice is a much-needed morale booster that allows us to make the individual choice to transform everything that holds us back from experiencing our own freedom and experiencing daily life as enjoyable and workable.
This ongoing continuous group practice was initiated by Dzongsar Khyentse Rinpoche in November 2018. Our aspiration is to integrate the Triratna sadhana into our daily lives as a means to systematically and sincerely manage and train our minds.
We invite one and all to connect and practice this simple yet profound sadhana with us.
