Doing Prostrations

Prostration Practice
Prayer of Refuge and Mind generation
To the Buddha, the Dharma and the Supreme Assembly,
I go for refuge until Awakening,
Through the creative potential of my practising generosity and other perfections.
May I achieve the state of a Buddha for the sake of all living beings.
Prostration Mantra
(Recite 3 times)
OM NA-MO MAN-JU SHRI-YE, NA-MO SU SHRI-YE, NA-MO UT-TA-MA SHRI-YE SO-HA
The method of Tibetan prostrating:
Long or stretch prostration
Hold your hands together before your heart in standing position.
Bring your joined palms to your crown.
Bring your joined palms to your throat.
Bring your joined palms to your heart.
Release your palms and kneel down on the ground.
Immediately, lie down on your stomach and stretch yourself out.
Short Prostration
Hold your hands together before your heart in standing position.
Bring your joined palms to your crown.
Bring your joined palms to your throat.
Bring your joined palms to your heart
Release your palms and kneel down on the ground.
Touch your palms and head on the ground.
Dedication
I dedicate my virtuous action to the benefit of all sentient beings.
May everyone be free from the suffering of samsara, and receive happiness.
