At Padma Samye Ling, New York, as well as Padma Samye Chokor Ling Monastery and Orgyen Samye Chokhor Ling Nunnery in Sarnath, India, the Venerable Khenpo Rinpoches and their sangha are willing to be of help during difficult times and on special occasions by offering heartfelt prayers, practices and aspirations for you and those you love.

Making prayer requests to Lamas and the sangha of practitioners is a traditional and widely spread Buddhist activity practiced for centuries up to the present. Combined with prayers, lamp offerings may be made to support and celebrate positive circumstances, as well as to help people in difficult times or during uncertain transitions. The gift of light and the accompanying prayers help to bring about less suffering and greater happiness in times of illness, loss, uncertainty, and death.

A traditional element of making a prayer request is to offer some support to the sangha as a way of further establishing a positive karmic connection between those who are praying and whomever is being prayed for.  This creates more conducive causes and conditions for wholesome aspirations and practices to be actualized for the benefit of others.

At this very moment
for the peoples and nations of the Earth,

May not even the names disease, famine, war and suffering be heard.

But rather may pure conduct, merit, wealth and prosperity increase,

And may supreme good fortune and well-being always arise!
