Everyone is welcome to our group chanted prayers, or Puja in Sanskrit. These are an important component of training in a spiritual life. They help to still our mind, connect with the Buddhas, and receive blessings. Below is the list of the group prayer sessions we practice together at the Center. All pujas are chanted in English. Beginners are welcome!

WISHFULFILLING JEWEL with TSOG

SATURDAY (check calendar for times)

By engaging in the Guru Yoga practiced in conjunction with Je Tsongkhapa we can purify negativity, accumulate merit, receive blessings, and attain a very special compassion, wisdom, and spiritual strength.
