Gyuto monks will accept prayer requests for death and dying as well as prayers for business and health. Venerable monks also perform the Jang-wa ritual for a deceased person. Traditionally, Jang-wa rituals are performed within the 49 days after death during the intermediate state before the person finds a new rebirth. It is said that the Jang-wa ritual will change the direction of the person’s rebirth. The Jang-wa ritual is a tantric practice of purification, due to the power of mantra, the power of concentration, and the power of the Buddha’s words of truth.
Within the practice of Jang-wa, there are different means of purification, but recitation of these powerful purification mantras is one of the main ones. If you would like to request the Jang-wa ritual ceremony for your loved one, please call us ahead of time. The ceremony takes 2-3 hours to complete. In order to perform the Jang-wa ritual ceremony, you need the person’s full name, picture, a piece of cloth which the deceased person used once. If you have ashes of the deceased person, then you can also bring for the ceremony. Cost for the ceremony: we normally don’t have any fees for our services; it is based on donations for the center and small offering to the individual monks who are performing the ceremony.
Your generous contributions allow us to continue serving the community. Thank you.
All donations are tax-deductible.
