Bardo Prayers

Under the guidance of Palden Nyima Rinpoche, Kunzang Chokhor Ling Buddhist Association has organized a system to request prayers and practices for the deceased. 
We extend our deepest sympathy during this challenging transitional period and keep you and your loved ones in our thoughts and prayers. 
Here you can request Bardo prayers and specific pujas for the passing of a family member, loved one, or friend after the person has died.

Kunzang Chokhor Ling offers concise,  standard, and elaborate puja options for the 49-day (7-week) period.  They differ in the list of prayers and practices (or pujas), and the amount of tsok and butter lamps offered. Below you can see the schedule for the three options, and then further below you can read a short description of each type of puja. In order to submit your request, please click on one of the three options, and you will be taken to a form where you can share the name of the deceased, and then make your offering. 


During the 49-day period, the end of every week is very important. On these days, one should accumulate butter lamp offerings and dedicate the merit to benefit the loved one for their journey through the bardos, for their purification of bad karma, and for helping them accumulate merit toward a good rebirth. Many people have also requested the option of making smaller offerings at the time of decease. 

If you have any questions about requesting Bardo Prayers, please contact our admin at +6011-56291376.

About the Pujas

Vajrasattva

The Sambhogakaya Buddha Vajrasattva is the sovereign of all the buddha families and mandalas.

In the past, while on the path of learning, Vajrasattva made the following aspiration:

 

In future, when I reach complete and perfect 

buddhahood, may those who have committed the five crimes with immediate retribution, or anyone whose samaya commitments have been impaired, be purified entirely of all their harmful actions and impairments merely by hearing my name, thinking of me, or reciting the hundred syllables, the most majestic of all the secret mantras! Until this is brought about may I remain without awakening!

This puja is for confession and purification and for guiding the bardo beings to have a smooth transition.

Amitabha Buddha

Amitabha Buddha is very well known among Mahayana and Vajrayana practitioners as the Buddha who made the aspiration to manifest the pure realm of Sukhavati, the pure land of great bliss, for beings to take rebirth.

 

Doing this puja on behalf of the deceased purifies negative karmas, accumulates merit, and connects them with Amitabha to help the deceased to be reborn in Amitabha’s pure land.

Dukngal Rangdrol

'The Natural Liberation of Suffering— a sadhana of Avalokiteshvara from the Longchen Nyingtik.

 

It is classified as a peaceful yidam practice, or as the secret guru practice from the peaceful male vidyadhara section of the cycle.

A 'guidance' practice intended to help guide the deceased to enlightenment by purifying the various realms of samsara and granting empowerment.

Sur Offering

A type of offering usually prepared from a mixture of the three whites and three sweets which is then burnt on coals or in a fire.

 

The smoke and odour generated by the offering has the power to especially satisfy wandering spirits and bardo beings who feed on smells.
