Powa Ceremony is a beautiful and powerful ritual practice drawn from the Buddhist tantras which 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.

If you are not able to attend but would like us to dedicate for someone please fill out this dedication request. More information can be found in the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully by Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.

The prayer session is free, though donations are always welcome. You can purchase the prayer booklet (sadhana) & mp3 download through the KMC Tampa Bay Bookstore or through Tharpa Publications.
