We are honoured to announce that we have the privilege of organizing the Jangwa Puja on the 5th of April 2023 in observance of the Qing Ming festival, also known as the Pure Brightness Festival, as per the request of our generous sponsors. The Qing Ming festival holds deep cultural significance as a time to pay homage to our ancestors. Undertaking the Jangwa Puja serves as a unique and profound means of benefiting those who have passed away. This Tibetan Buddhist tantric practice can be performed for both recently departed individuals and those who have been gone for a longer period.

The Jangwa Puja, also referred to as the 药师佛超度法会, carries numerous advantages. It aids in purifying the negative karma responsible for suffering and undesirable rebirths. Furthermore, it facilitates a positive transition for the departed, ensuring a favorable rebirth in higher realms, including the Pureland. This ritual stands as a beautiful expression of reverence and remembrance for our dear ones who have crossed over.

Benefits of this puja include:

  1. Cleansing the negative karma that leads to significant suffering and lower forms of rebirth.
  2. Assisting in achieving a favorable rebirth in higher realms, potentially even in the Pureland.
  3. Altering the trajectory of recently departed souls from lower realms to higher ones.
