The purpose of doing ‘powa’, or transference of consciousness, is to lead countless deceased beings to the Pure Land of a Buddha.
We understand that throughout this world millions of humans and billions of animals die every day from so many different causes. If these living beings have the opportunity to take rebirth in a Budda’s Pure Land, they will attain permanent liberation from suffering and experience pure and everlasting happiness. Our practice of this powa offers them this precious opportunity. By engaging in this practice we ourself will create a great collection of virtue, which will also lead us into the pathway to the Pure Land of a Buddha.
We perform this powa practice on behalf of those who have recently died, traditionally within 49 days of their death.
NEXT LIVESTREAMED POWA is SATURDAY Saturday, April 17th 11:30am (please register above to receive a link)
Powa is a free event. Everyone Welcome!
