Prayers and Practices

There are many prayers and practices that we can do to help animals and insects, whether they are pets or not. All need liberating from the lower realms. Lama Zopa Rinpoche recommends some main mantras particularly for animals, such as the mantras of Maitreya, Mitrugpa, Chenrezig, Medicine Buddha, Milarepa, Padmasambhava and the other 10 Powerful Mantras. The FPMT Animal Liberation Handbook contains the mantras plus much more and is available through the FPMT store (www.fpmt.org).

This section will be expanded in the future.
