Everyone is welcome to attend our group chanted prayers, or pujas in Sanskrit. These are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help to still our mind, connect with the Buddhas, and receive blessings. 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.
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. If you would like for us to make dedications on behalf of someone you know, please complete the form on our Prayer Requests page.
Beginners are welcome!
