The purpose of doing ‘powa’, or transference of consciousness, is to lead countless deceased beings to the Pure Land of a Buddha.
Here is the link for joining POWA SATURDAY MAY 30th 12pm https://us02web.zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_RjBpH3BZRZiuJUt5O9eJxg
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 behlf of those who have recently died, traditionally within 49 days of their death.
