Even if you aren't able to attend any part of the Phowa Course, you may connect with the activities by making a donation or sending in names to be included in the Liberation for Dead Beings prayer ceremony (Neydren). You may make an offering on behalf of all sentient beings, loved ones or pets, no matter how long ago they have passed. All names must be submitted by Friday, September 16 at 5 PM Pacific Standard Time. Donations for the Liberation Prayers will support our Safe Childbirth in Tibet project. Donate online (add names when you check out) or send a check to our address below (reply to this email to add your names).
There is no charge to attend the Phowa Course or any of the teachings, empowerment or prayer ceremonies.
May all beings share in the merit of our activities,
