Chanted Prayers: Powa for the Recently Deceased

Chanted Prayers: Powa for the Recently Deceased

Prayers to Avalokiteshvara

Once a month the Center engages in a Powa Ceremony which is a powerful ritual practice drawn from the Buddhist tantras which enables us to benefit the deceased by coming together as a group and making prayers and offerings on their behalf. Then, through the power of our compassionate intention, strong prayers, and concentration on the practice, we transfer the consciousness of the deceased to the Pure Land of the Buddha of Compassion so that they will experience pure and lasting peace and finally be freed from the painful cycle of suffering and its causes.

If you would like to add someone who has recently passed away to our Powa prayers, please arrive 10 minuets early to add the name to the dedication.
