Prayers, Pujas, and Butterlamps

Spiritual Offerings at the Kilung Monastery

In times of need, we may wish to turn toward spiritual community, to monks who have dedicated themselves to the Buddhist understanding of life. The power of prayer, mantra, and intention weave together an ancient and compassionate remedy to alleviate suffering and bring blessing.

Kilung Monastery monks offer prayers, pujas, and butterlamps for various kinds of life needs. These practices are done daily at the monastery for local community, with increasing numbers of requests internationally. Other spiritual offerings that are available at the Kilung Monastery include Animal Release.
