Group meditations give us an opportunity to come together in prayer and to make praises and requests to the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas. Using ancient prayers, which have been translated into English, we receive the blessings, protection and guidance of the holy beings. We can make requests for ourselves or for others who need help or protection. These spiritual practices create a strong connection with the Buddhas, help us to purify our negativity, and fill our mind with positive, healing energy.
Most of these meditations are free and open to everyone. You may sit either on a chair or a cushion on the floor, both of which are provided by the center. Please see the list below of chanted meditations held at the center and our calendar for times. Click on the links below for more information concerning each specific puja.
