Three Vajras

Welcome!

Our website is dedicated to the Three Vajras - Speech, Body and Mind. Buddhist Vajra is a symbol of invincibility. Since only the Good Karma is truly invincible, the Path of our school is the creation of Good Karma through Speech, Body and Mind. Here you can find useful materials that will be suitable for your practice - no matter to which school of Buddhism or yoga you belong.

Suttas will help you learn about the foundations of the Teaching, founded by the Buddha Shakyamuni. In the 'Heritage of Masters' section, you can find research on the experience of famous masters passing on the Dharma of the Buddha.

The 'Video' section will give you the opportunity to master the Mudra Yoga, which is accessible to people of all ages or any state of health. In addition, more complex practices of yoga and meditation are presented in the ‘Video’ section.

In the 'Books' section, you can download free guides and works of art dedicated to the practice of Dharma. Richly illustrated by our authors, the section 'Samaya' tells in detail about the ten deities of the mandala, which are the foundation of the Buddhist pantheon.

Let there be Good!

Vattha Sutta, The Cloth, Majjhima Nikaya 7

The Cloth and the Paint In the conversation with disciples, the Buddha compares a mind to a cloth, and the state of mind after the dissolution of the body – with the paint. If dirty cloth is dipped into the paint – it will be painted badly and the color will deteriorate. If a clean cut of the fabric is dipped into the paint, the paint will dye the cloth well, and the cloth will keep bright, clear color. The same can be said about the mind: if it is…read more

Akankheyya Sutta, Fulfillment of Noble Desires, Majjhima Nikaya 6

The name of the Sutta The literal translation of the name of the Sutta is “If anyone desires”. The Buddha explains the essence of right effort to realize non-egoistic desires. Regardless of the nobility of these desires, the Buddha speaks of them not as the goals, on which the mind of the seekers should be focused, but as the natural stages of purification of consciousness. Even the three Super-knowledges (of past lives, future reincarnations and the knowledge of eliminating hindrances and consciousness impurities) appear as the result of the impassive…read more
