BE AT OUR MONTHLY PUJAS
A puja consists of meditations, visualisations and prayers, including taking refuge and generating bodhicitta, followed by an elaborate version of the seven limb practice: making prostrations and offerings, confessing one’s negativities, rejoicing in the good deeds of oneself and others, requesting the Buddhas to remain in samsara and teach, and dedicating the created merits (positive energy). Mantras, praises and requests are also usually recited.

The purpose of a puja is to purify one’s negative energy thus clearing away obstacles in life and spiritual practice for oneself and others. One also creates new positive energy and this is dedicated for the fulfillment of one’s own wishes and the wishes of others, including the most profound and expansive wish of all: to become a fully enlightened Buddha for the benefit of all beings.

At Norbu Choling Centre you may participate at whatever level you feel comfortable: simply observing or reciting along with the group. The monthly pujas are usually conducted in a combination of English and Tibetan (phonetics provided). Check out our Calendar of Events for the latest updates of regular pujas and sutra recitations. Give a gift of prayer to the sick , for those who have passed away, for those who are experiencing problems or simply wish all sentient beings, who have been our mothers and fathers, be well and happy.

Quote: “These days in the world so many diseases are there such as cancer, aids, leprosy, heart attack, stroke...because we have been contaminating the world since centuries and it hurts the subterranean beings such as Nagas , the owners of the land/ground and they are unhappy and sick so we get so many incurable diseases. To prevent these kind of diseases and even if you are already affected, you can practice ‘Vajrapani Hayagriva Garuda’ and through this practice, you can get rid of these diseases.” From Lochen Tulku Rinpoche's Vajrapani Hayagriva Garuda Initiation.

GURU PUJA(YOGA)
The Guru Puja(Yoga) is a practice consisting of making offerings to and requesting inspiration from the Guru, seen as the embodiment of the Three Jewels (Buddha, Dharma and Sangha), visualized in the form of Je Tsongkhapa surrounded by the merit field who come to help us to accumulate merit through them so that is why it is called the field of merit. Spiritual vows and commitments, which might have degenerated, are also restored through the practice of the tsog (feast offering). In this practice, we unite our minds with the holy mind of the Guru, who is considered the root and life force of the spiritual path, in order to receive blessings and generate realizations on the path to Enlightenment. The practice of Dharma means the practice of seven limbs or seven branches. While we are doing Guru Yoga, we are also are practicing the seven limbs of practice through the Guru and Guru Je Tsongkhapa.
TARA PUJA
Tara represents the quick wisdom and compassion of all the enlightened beings in a female form. Praying to Tara eliminates obstacles to the fulfillment of our wishes for successful Dharma activities and our spiritual progress. Anyone who wishes to have material prosperity, good health and can attain these by paying homage and reciting Praises to the Twenty-one Taras and reciting her mantra, " Om Tare Tuttare Ture Soha." " Buddha Vairochana blessed Tara and prophesied to her that at the end of the aeon, in those lands and worlds where pujas, prayers, and rituals of Tara are recited, as a result of these prayers, the many diseases, troubles, and disturbances caused by evil spirits and by human beings would be pacified and resolved."
SUTRA RECITATIONS
The Buddha’s teachings, known as Sutras, were given over a 45-year period and fill 100 volumes. Buddha himself said that studying, meditating upon, and even just reading/reciting these Sutras can bring us tremendous purification and merit, help us quickly develop our wisdom and compassion, and lead us toward Enlightenment.
