Prayers for the Deceased

Powa Ceremony, a beautiful and powerful ritual practice drawn from the Buddhist tantra, enables us to benefit the deceased by coming together as a group and making prayers and offerings on their behalf. Then, through the power of our compassionate intention, strong prayers, and concentration on the practice, we transfer the consciousness of the deceased to the Pure Land of the Buddha of Compassion. There they will experience a pure and lasting peace and finally be freed from the painful cycling of suffering and its causes.

If you would like prayers made on behalf of someone who has died, please contact epc@odiyana.org or fill out a prayer request form on the website.
