Livestream Powa Prayers (Transference of Consciousness for the Deceased)

Live-Stream Powa Prayers
Transference of Consciousness for the Deceased

Every 3rd Saturday of the Month, 10:00 – 10:45am
Occasional changes due to scheduling, for exact times, please check the calendar.


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.

By coming together as a group and doing Powa Ceremony, our prayers are stronger and more powerful. In addition, we ourself will create a great collection of virtue, which will also lead us into the pathway to the Pure Land of a Buddha.

If you would like to add the name(s) of a recently deceased to the Powa list (which the teacher will read out before the prayers begin), please submit using the form below.  If you have any problems, please contact education@meditationinphiladelphia.org.

We hope that you will join us on the third Saturday of each month at 10am – 10:45am to engage in this profound experience of helping others in this way.

No cost.
