Powa Prayers for the Recently Deceased

Prayers to Avalokiteshvara

Held on the first Sunday of each month

Through practicing transference of consciousness, known as ‘powa’ with faith, compassion and concentration we can transfer the consciousness of those recently deceased to a higher rebirth or to the Pure Land of a Buddha. The Powa Ceremony can be done either by a group of practitioners or individually on behalf of one or more deceased persons, or countless deceased beings. By engaging in this practice we also create a great collection of virtue, which will also lead us into the pathway to a Buddha’s Pure Land. Check <a href="https://meditationinnewyork.org/powa-prayers-for-the-deceased/" target="_blank" rel="noopener noreferrer">our Powa page for times</a>. Everyone welcome.

Upcoming Powa Pujas at KMC NYC

Once a month the Center engages in a lovely ritual practice on behalf of those who have recently deceased. The practice entails a transference of consciousness, whereby through chanted prayers and mantras, the participants assist in directing the consciousness of the recently deceased directly to the Pure Land. Food and flower offerings (tending toward white) are welcome. (1 hour)
