In these traditional sung prayers in German you connect with Buddha in a special way, to nurture positive qualities like compassion and wisdom. The duration is approx. 35 Minutes. You can participate in meditation posture or in any other comfortable position. Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche points this out to us, that we should perform chanted prayers without distractions.
This is a recorded version of the prayers, which are recited every fourth Sunday of the month in the Kadampa Meditation Center Berlin.
To get the maximum benefit from this and other prayers, it is best, at the time to start, which is stated on the website.
By practicing powa or “Transfer of consciousness” with confidence, Compassion and concentration we can transfer the consciousness of the recently deceased in a higher rebirth or in the Pure Land of a Buddha. The powa ceremony can either be performed by a group of practitioners or individually on behalf of the recently deceased person. By doing this practice, we also create a great accumulation of virtue, that will lead us on the path to Buddha's Pure Land.
