Making prayer requests to Lamas and the sangha of practitioners is a traditional and widely Buddhist activity practiced for centuries up to the present. Combined with prayers, lamp offerings may be made to support and celebrate positive circumstances, as well as to help people in difficult times or during uncertain transitions. The gift of light and the accompanying prayers help to bring about less suffering and greater happiness in times of illness, loss, uncertainty, and death. Requests are carried out at Padma Samye Ling as well as in India by the monks and nuns in Rinpoche's monasteries.
There is a bowl in the shrineroom at Yeshe Tsogyal House with slips of paper. To make a prayer request, write the name of the person in need of prayers on a slip of paper and place it in the bowl. If you are able, it is also customary to make an offering which can be placed in the donation box. Offerings of flowers for the shrine are also acceptable.
Once a month, at the full moon, we will have a special fire ceremony in which the names will be read and offered up with prayers and mantra recitation.
If you cannot come to Yeshe Tsogyal House in person, you may email your request by clicking here. The name will be placed in the bowl for you. If you would like to make a monetary offering online, please click here.
