Powa Ceremony, also known as the practice of transference of consciousness, is performed each month at our Centre on behalf of those who have recently died, traditionally within forty-nine days of their death. Through doing Powa practice 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. Everyone is welcome.
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.
