Group Prayers

The Four Immeasurables Prayer

A prayer you might wish to repeat as part of your own daily practice.

May everyone be happy,
May everyone be free from misery,
May no one ever be separated from their happiness,
May everyone have equanimity free from hatred and attachment.

Meditation prayers, often called pujas, are an important part of our spiritual practice. They help us to prepare our mind for successful meditation by creating mental transformation that comes from Buddha's blessings. They help us to purify our mind of negativity and gather positive energy that comes from reciting and focusing on the meaning of the prayers.  They also help to still our mind, connect with the Buddhas, and receive blessings.

Some pujas include a special food offering called a tsog offering. The merit (good fortune) accumulated from this offering is then dedicated to world peace in general, and to the welfare of specific people in the community. You are welcome to bring a vegetarian food offering, such as fruit, cookies, or a non-alcoholic drink, if you wish.

Everyone is welcome to attend our group prayers.   Below is the list of the group prayer sessions we practice together at the Center. All pujas are chanted in English with some occasional Sanskrit.
