What is puja?

A puja is a group practice with prayers offered to the Buddhas to request their blessings or help. 

 

In life, we may experience moments of ups and downs. Buddhism holds the belief that what happens in this life is the result of our past actions. From beginning-less time, we have committed virtuous as well as non-virtuous actions. The happiness we experience is the result of past virtuous actions. Conversely, sufferings and obstacles we experience are due to past negative actions. Puja is good for removing obstacle and bringing success.

Puja Recordings 

It is also very beneficial to listen to puja as it purifies the environment, benefiting one's energy. 

There are three types of obstacles:

Worldly obstacles -

which affect our daily life, relationships, career etc.

 

Inner obstacles -

which often manifest as strong emotions or confusion, harming our mental and physical health.

 

Secret obstacles -

which prevent us from practicing Dharma, and hinder our path to enlightenment. ​

Pujas can be performed for various purposes:

  • To bring success in activities, business, relationships, family and other worldly or spiritual purposes.

 

  • Removing obstacles on mental and physical health.

  • Blessing the deceased, praying for their liberation and for them to be reborn in Pure Realms.

  • Prayers for the dying to have the virtuous mind that could benefit them during the time of death.
