Prayer Ceremonies
for Home or Business and Individual or Family Well-Being

by the Monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery

 

In Tibetan culture, it is a popular and customary practice for families to invite monks and nuns to perform spiritual ceremonies for diverse purposes such as health, protection, and success in one’s undertakings, both routinely for general well-being and also at times of specific need.

The monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery are available for private blessing ceremonies, home and business blessings, prayers, pujas and lama chopas while on their yearlong Mystical Arts of Tibet tour. The tour is produced and organized by Drepung Loseling Monastery, Inc. in Atlanta, GA to contribute to world healing and peace, and to help preserve the endangered Tibetan culture by raising funds for Drepung Loseling Monastery. Two thirds of the monastery’s three thousand monks are recent refugees from Tibet and their numbers continue to grow yearly as more and more Tibetans flee their homeland to find cultural and religious freedom in exile in India.
 
 
From time to time along their tours the monks have had the opportunity to offer such ceremonies for individuals or their families. These rituals range from a few hours to several days in length, depending on their complexity. Their purpose is to bring well-being on all levels – in one’s health, relationships, business, and family – as well as to purify the home where the ritual is conducted. Multi-day engagements can include the construction of beautiful Tibetan sand mandalas and their associated rituals. Some mandala examples are the Medicine Buddha for healing, the Akshobhya Buddha for protection, or the female Buddha Tara for enlightened activities, success in one’s projects, and health.
 
Such ceremonies purify the elements of the environment which helps those living or visiting there to experience good health, success and well-being. The ceremonies can also be individualized according to need and are donation-based. All donations go to Drepung Loseling Monastery in exile in India to preserve and keep vibrant the legacy and spiritual tradition of Tibet. All donations are tax-deductible to the extent allowed by law.
