The most significant benefit of the Incense Puja - one of several
powerful pujas in Tibetan Buddhism - is that it purifies spirit
What kind of spirit harms?
We constantly accumulate negative karma when we benefit at the cost
other sentient being's lives. The negative karma accumulated from
eating meat, drinking alcohol, wearing silk clothes and leather shoes
etc needs to be purified to prevent them from ripening to cause us
additional pain and suffering.
At just $5 per name, you can participate and make incense offerings
in this special, meaningful puja.
SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA PUJA
This puja helps us develop and strengthen our faith in the Buddha. We
collect vast merits just by reflecting on his many meritorious deeds,
rejoicing and making offerings, both real and visualized.
It also purifies our negative karma when we confess our misdeeds with
regret and allows us to create further merit with auspicious wishes
and prayers for the flourishing of the Buddha's doctrine.
LIGHT OFFERING PRAYER
H.E. Lama Thubten Namdrol Dorje Rinpoche will be conducting this
Prayer and dedicating the merits to all those who have contributed
generously to our Merry Merit Making efforts.
The public is welcome to make individual light offerings.
These events are open to all members of the public.
