Buddha hands

Chanted prayers with meditations (called “pujas”) are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help us to still our mind, connect with enlightened beings, receive blessings, and meditate well. We use ancient prayers that that have been translated into English. The prayers are available in booklet form, and are also recorded (so it is easy to follow the words, and participate in the puja even if you are a beginner).

Our primary daily practice is Heart Jewel, combined with meditations on the stages of the path (Lamrim) and Mahamudra;  twice a month we have special prayers called Offering to the Spiritual Guide; and we also do some prayers on a monthly basis, such as, Kangso or (Melodious Drum) and Liberation from Sorrow.  For those who have received a Highest Yoga Tantra Empowerments, there are twice weekly Highest Yoga Tantra prayers.

Everyone is welcome to come to any of these chanted prayers with meditations free of charge. 

Note: If you are new to Buddhist prayers, there is always someone there who will guide you through the puja - so you know what is happening - i.e. you won't be left nervously wondering what you should do!)

Note: At certain times during the year (e.g.: over the Christmas period - or when something out of the blue like covid19 changes everything), some sessions may not be held, so please check the calendar for specific details.
