This teaching will cover the transmission of a variety of mantras, their pronunciation, how to visualize mantras, how to use them in your daily life, and how to keep the vows. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will also discuss how to practice when you are experiencing difficult times. You can change your ordinary activities into Vajrayana practice by the recitation of special mantras. The power of mantras is very beneficial when performed during the activities of daily life: eating, walking, cleaning, bathing, working, travelling, or when you come across dead people and animals.
