Prayers for the Deceased (Powa)—Prayers to Avalokiteshvara

In this transference of consciousness, through concentration, compassion, faith, prayers, and mantras the participants assist in directing the consciousness of the recently deceased directly to the Pure Land, where they will be free from suffering and experience true happiness forevermore.

Offering to the Spiritual Guide

10th & 25th each month
Please see calendar for exact times and dates.

This is a special practice of relying upon our Spiritual Guide as a Buddha and making praises and requests, but it also contains beautiful essential instructions on all the stages of the path to enlightenment and training the mind, as well as both the generation stage and completion stage of Highest Yoga Tantra.

We also make specific prayers for our friends, family members, Sangha, and others who are suffering or have died. This practice includes a tsog (food) offering which you can virtually engage in through your imagination.

Melodious Drum
Extensive Prayers to Dorje Shugden

29th Each Month
Please see calendar for exact times and dates.

This monthly practice takes place on or close to the 29th of each month, so-called Protector Day, and consists principally of prayers to our Dharma Protector, the Wisdom Buddha Dorje Shugden.

A Dharma Protector is an emanation of a Buddha or Bodhisattva whose main functions are to avert the inner and outer obstacles that prevent practitioners from attaining spiritual realizations, and to arrange all the necessary conditions for their practice.

Dorje Shugden is a Dharma Protector, which means he specializes in helping us keep our minds off delusions and on Dharma. One way he does this is by helping us transform all appearances into the spiritual path, opening our wisdom eyes so that we know what to do with each situation as it arises, generating Dharma minds such as renunciation, compassion, or wisdom.

This practice includes a tsog offering, so you can imagine a vegetarian food offering with you if you wish.
