Light offering.png

This is a FREE EVENT

In a similar way that light dispels darkness, wisdom/understanding dispels ignorance and despair and kindness/compassion dispels hostility and resentment.

 The light offering practice is an opportunity to acknowledge the problems we may have caused for ourselves and others during the year and see in the new year with a renewed wish to be a better person and to be a much needed positive influence in the world.

The light offering practice involves those attending, to light the tealights, invoke all the healing energy in the world, and recite buddhist prayers with an altruistic motivation. 

People can also write the names of loved ones who have recently died, are in the process of dying or are undergoing difficulties and dedicate the benefit of engaging in the practice to their welfare.

The ceremony will take approximately 45 minutes

*** Pujas will be online via zoom until further notice ***
