Medicine Buddha Puja Prayer Request

The Medicine Buddha Puja is performed every day at Land of Medicine Buddha, normally by Venerable Samten. On Sundays, this is open to the public and you are welcome to join at 2 pm via Facebook live or in-person at the Gompa. (See our Practices and Pujas page for more information on weekly pujas). Ven. Samten dedicates the merit of these pujas to all beings and also specifically to those that have requested prayers.

You can request a prayer for a friend, family member, pet, or anyone who could benefit from them. You can also request prayers for those who have recently passed away.

To request a prayer, please use one of these forms below:

Making an Offering

Making an offering toward the puja creates a connection between the person being prayed for and the prayers being made. Customarily, when people request prayers, what they are really doing is sponsoring the prayers. Without the offering, there is not necessarily any connection between the puja and the people who need the prayers.

Alternatives to Requesting Prayers From Others

Doing the puja yourself is also an option. The best is if the person who needs the help – the healing, the good fortune, etc. – does the puja. The next best is if someone who is connected to that person – friend, family member, spiritual teacher – does the puja. Here is the link to get a copy of the puja text.
