Sponsor Prayers and Pujas

Throughout the year, our sangha of monks at Do-Ngak Ling Monastery and Asura Cave and the nuns of Nagi Gompa Nunnery perform pujas and practices on behalf of Phakchok Rinpoche and his students and benefactors. Certain prayers are recited on a daily basis while other rituals are performed monthly, or just once a year.

Samye Institute now offers a quick and convenient way to sponsor these deeply meaningful practices. Simply select a puja, fill out the form, and we will notify the druplas and monks of your kind offering along with any names of dedication you choose to include. You also have the option to subscribe to any puja on a monthly (daily and monthly pujas) or yearly basis (annual pujas).

Your offering supports the monastic communities living at Do-Ngak Ling Monastery, Asura Cave, and Nagi Gompa Nunnery who dedicate their lives to the study and practice of the Buddhadharma. We rejoice in the merit of your generosity in support of the noble sangha. A small percentage of each offering goes to our website support team and prayer coordinator who monitor and track all the prayer requests and ensure proper follow-through with the monastic team.

If your financial circumstances prevent you from offering the suggested amount, please note that the daily Avalokiteshvara, Vajrasattva, and Bar Sam Drol Sum prayers all carry with them a very modest suggested offering. We will never turn away anyone in need, if you require further assistance please don’t hesitate to contact us.
