12:30 PM – 1:30 PM (Remember Daylight Savings Time)

We will be holding a special Powa practice for the recently deceased.

Powa Ceremony is a beautiful and powerful ritual practice drawn from the Buddhist Tantras that enables us to benefit the deceased by coming together as a group and making prayers and offerings on their behalf. Then, through the power of our compassionate intention, strong prayers, and concentration on the practice, we transfer the consciousness of the deceased to the Pure Land of the Buddha of Compassion so that they will experience a pure and lasting peace and finally be freed from the painful cycle of suffering and its causes. It's a beautiful, very auspicious practice and everyone is welcome to attend.  

If you have a loved one who has recently deceased (less than 49 days) and would like them to be included in this meaningful practice, or if you have any questions about the practice, please feel free to contact the center (914) 607-3583, or  You may bring a photograph of the deceased; and it is also customary to bring offerings such as candles, soaps, flowers, food, or any beautiful offering of your choosing.
