Padmasambhava Buddhist Center (PBC) uses a Sakyamuni Sadhana as a focus for group practice, I believe.  I think it's the one composed by Mipham Rinpoche, but I'm not sure.

The one we are using is written by Mipham Rinpoche.

Any chance of somebody sending me (electronically or by snail mail) a copy of the Ju Mipham sadhana to Buddha Sakyamuni?  I would love to see (and practice) it!

Ju Mipham Rinpoche (father to the 17th Karmapa Thaye Trinley Dorje AND to the 14th Sonam Tsemo Rinpoche, an important Sakya tulku) also wrote an amazing sadhana for Guru Rinpoche.  Many are the times I have considered going to Spain just to receive this teaching from him!

  :dharma: Namo Guru Shakyamunaye  :dharma:

I am a sangha member at Pema Karpo Meditation Center in Memphis, TN (http://www.pemakarpo.org). We are extremely fortunate and blessed to have Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche as our spiritual director and teacher. While I am certainly not qualified to judge such good qualities, may I humbly say that he has received special recognition from His Holiness the Dalai Lama and is truly a brilliant teacher par excellence. Recently, we were also magnificently blessed with a visit from His Eminence Garchen Rinpoche (https://www.garchen.net/, http://www.ForTheBenefitOfAllBeings.com/preview.html) who gave profound teachings on the Prayer of Samantabhadra and conferred the White Tara abhisheka.

Khenpo Gawang Rinpoche has established that our sangha will practice The Treasury of Blessings of the Liturgy of the Muni by Jamgon Mipham Rinpoche as our main group practice. We chant it every Sunday during our morning session. Please, find attached a PDF of the sadhana as it appears in our chant book.

May all beings be happy!

I was just wondering, how many of my vajra bro's and sisters practice Shakyamuni Sadhanas?  We have protector practices, bodhisattva practices, yidam practices, Amitabha, Guru Rinpoche, lineage prayers, smoke and fire pujas, etc... but Buddha Shakyamuni?

It might be connected with the intention of practice. Not everybody like to be free from suffering, there are so many thing have to be done first. A kind of intentional loop, a real great trap. *smile*

This is very interesting. I have never heard of a Buddha Shakyamuni Sadhana either. I am in the Gelug tradition and we regularly practice Guru Yoga of Lama Tsongkhapa. Part of the visualization is to visualize Lama Tsongkhapa with Buddha Shakyamuni in his heart and in Buddha Shakyamuni's heart is Buddha Vajradhara. Hence, when we propitiate Lama Tsongkhapa, we are propitiating Buddha Shakyamuni, Vajradhara and the Sutra and Tantric teachings that they have bestowed upon us.

I believe that Vajradhara is taught to be the enlightenment of Shakyamuni as seen from the Vajrayana perspective. I heard that from a Gelug monk, but I think it is true in the Kagyu tradition as well.
Warning: I'm enough of a fundamentalist Tibet style Buddhist to believe that for the last 1,000 years Tibet has produced a handful of enlightened masters in every generation. I do not ask that YOU believe it, but it will greatly simplify conversations if you understand that about me. Thanks.
