Dedicate Ceremonies

We invite you to sponsor prayers for the benefit of yourself, family, friends or animal companions; or for a cause, project or place you care about. You can dedicate your prayer request with a Temple Ceremony ($108-$150) or a Bell Ringing ($25).In the Tibetan lunar calendar, there are special times when the power of prayer and the merit generated are greatly increased. The auspicious days below are celebrated monthly by the Odiyan community in the Temples. Your dedication request will be read aloud at the opening of the Ceremony.
