Chanted Prayers & Dedications


Chanted Prayers

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!

Weekly & Monthly Prayers

Heart Jewel Prayer is the heart practice of Kadampa Buddhism. In this practice, we make special prayers to Je Tsongkhapa, one of our principle lineage teachers, as well as our Dharma Protector, Dorje Shugden. Includes time for silent meditation.

    Tara Prayers
    Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas. She protects us from internal and external dangers, and provides us with necessary conditions for our spiritual training.

    We traditionally engage in Tara Prayers on the 8th day of each month, however, currently we are joining via streaming from the Kadampa Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC in England. This “24-hour” prayer continues every 4 hours in 6 1-hour sessions.
