Powa Ceremony, a powerful ritual practice which enables us to benefit the deceased by coming together as a group and making prayers and offerings on their behalf. We perform this practice traditionally within 49 days of their death. Then, through the power of our compassionate intention, strong prayer, 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 a pure and lasting peace and finally be freed from the painful cycling of suffering and it’s causes. It is a beautiful practice appropriate for everyone.
If you wish for us to perform this on behalf of someone who recently died, it is customary to bring flowers or food (no meat or alcohol, please) offerings on behalf of the deceased and, if possible, a picture.
