Powa Ceremony – Prayers for the Recently Deceased
Come join us for this beautiful and ancient puja which focuses on making special prayers and requests for the recently deceased, and helps them to attain rebirth in a Pure Land (Heaven). No experience is necessary.
Through practising transference of consciousness, known as ‘powa’ with faith, compassion and concentration we can transfer the consciousness of those recently deceased to a higher rebirth or to the Pure Land of a Buddha. The Powa Ceremony can be done either by a group of practitioners or individually on behalf of one or more deceased persons, or countless deceased beings. By engaging in this practice we also create a great collection of virtue, which will also lead us into the pathway to a Buddha’s Pure Land.
