Chanted meditations or prayers, known as ‘pujas,’ are special methods for purifying negativity, accumulating merit and receiving blessings. They helps us to develop and maintain a positive mind, and are a powerful preparation for meditation.

Our main practice is Wishfulfilling Jewel, which includes time for silent meditation. The community comes together for these prayers every day, and you are welcome to join us.

Everyone is welcome to attend all the pujas apart from Highest Yoga Tantra pujas, which are for HYT practitioners only. There is no need to book, and no fee.

Please see calendar for dates and times of pujas.
