Pujas and Ceremonies

Discover the Rich Inner World of Tibetan Ritual

Special annual events and blessings, and regular practices recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche to ensure our harmony and success.

We celebrate the major auspicious days on the Buddhist calendar, including Buddha’s Birthday, Day of Miracles, and Descent from Tushita. We also regularly recite the Diamond Cutter Sutra, Sanghata Sutra, and the Sutra of Golden Light.

We try to hold an annual extensive Medicine Buddha Puja and the special All-Night Tara Puja. These longer ceremonies are very powerful for bringing blessings and dispelling all types of obstacles. We also have an annual Teens and Tweens Tara Puja which is an absolute hoot!

If you cannot make it to the puja but would still like to be involved, you can part-sponsor a puja by donating securely online. Email in your dedications so we can read them out to the group. You can dedicate for the well-being of friends and family, for the sick and vulnerable, for healing the planet, and for the success of your studies, of a project, and all your Dharma aspirations!
