Puja Program

Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche has developed the Sponsored Puja Program at Gar Drolma in Ohio for individuals to have the opportunity to request and sponsor a Puja to benefit oneself or another, for the living or for the dead. The pujas, prayers, can be for protection, removing obstacles, pacifying illness, or helping the deceased.

Pujas sponsored will be performed by Khenpo Samdup Rinpoche who may also be joined by other monastics and/or practitioners.

In order to benefit the community, Gar Drolma Dharma Center in Ohio is offering rituals, puja and prayer, to “assist with” the purification of negative “factors” and the generation of positive, favorable conditions. I will always pray that the negative circumstances, hindrances, and obstacles of the ritual benefactors be pacified and their wishes be accomplished spontaneously.” ~H.E. Garchen Rinpoche


Pujas are rituals that involve visualization, recitation of mantras and prayers, and making offerings to enlightened beings. Pujas are performed to receive the blessings of enlightened beings, accumulate merit, and dispel obstacles and negative circumstances. In traditional buddhist culture lay people make offerings and request pujas to increase positive circumstances and success in spiritual and worldly affairs as well as to deal with or avert problems that may occur in these areas. Each puja is centered around a buddha figure specially suited to perform a given function such as removing obstacles or pacifying illness.
