Chanted Prayers & Dedications
All chanted prayers are offered through Zoom
Chanted Prayers are special group meditations (sometimes called pujas) that are an aspect of training in a spiritual life. They help us to still our mind, connect with the Buddhas, and receive the inspiring energy of blessings.
Here you’ll find chanted prayers we regularly engage in at the Center. Gathering in this special way creates many causes for increased peace in our world.
Scroll down to make dedications (special prayer requests) for those experiencing difficulty, illness, or death.
All chanted meditations are FREE. Everyone is welcome!
