Request Prayers and Rituals
Request Prayers and Rituals

You can sponsor rituals and prayers for the living and deceased on important personal occasions.

Rituals for the living promote good health and prolong life, create the causes and conditions for the successful accomplishment of aspirations and activities, provide strength and support, remove obstacles, and prevent harm. Rituals for the deceased purify negative deeds committed in the past life, help attain a better rebirth, and reduce fear during the intermediate state.

Disposal of Dharma Materials
Disposal of Unneeded Dharma Materials

Proper disposal is important because having taking refuge in the Three Jewels we vow to respect representations of the Buddha, Dharma, and Sangha, including even the most humble images of the Buddha and scraps of paper with even a single word of Dharma. In order to assist those who wish to properly dispose of these respected but unneeded items, we accepts Dharma items to be placed at all three locationsin, or to be included to our periodic ritual disposal ceremonies.
