Butterlamps

Requests for Practices, Offering for Tsog or Butterlamps and Prayer Flags

All offerings help to fulfill the two accumulations, that of increasing merit and wisdom, and purifying all obscurations.

It is possible to dedicate a practice, a ceremony, a tsog or butterlamps to remove obstacles or increase blessings for yourself or others.  You simply make a one-time or regular contribution along with a written dedication and we will read your dedication aloud in the course of the ceremony or at the time of lighting the butterlamps. If you attend the practice you may do this before we start, but it is also possible to send your dedication and offering without being present.

About Butter Lamp Offerings

In the Buddhist tradition, butter lamps symbolize the clarity of wisdom. The light the lamp offers seems very small but it is envisioned as lighting the entire three thousand fold universe.  Offering butter lamps generates merit while promoting success, prosperity, longevity, and world peace, as well as helping to avert obstacles and heal disease. When offered on behalf of the deceased they symbolize lighting the path to liberation.

If you wish to offer butterlamps without being present, please contact us.
