Introducing Samye Institute's Vajrayana Membership

Request Prayers

In response to many requests, under the guidance of Phakchok Rinpoche, Samye Institute has now expanded our prayer offerings. In addition to our Bardo prayers for the deceased, we now provide an easy way for anyone to request prayers and practices for removing obstacles, relieving suffering and fears of all types, and magnetizing favorable conditions.

Under Rinpoche’s direction, we have selected a menu of prayers that our monastic sangha can perform on your or your loved one’s behalf. You may choose between a standard prayer, an elaborate prayer, or a monthly sponsorship of our monastery’s regular prayers and practices.

You can now request that our Druplas and monks from Do-Ngak Ling monastery and Asura Cave, as well as the Tsunmas (nuns) of Nagi Gompa make prayers for your benefit, your loved ones, and all mother sentient beings.

It is important to all of us at Samye Institute to respond to your prayer requests as thoughtfully and quickly as possible. If your financial circumstances prevent you from offering the suggested amount, please note that the Avalokiteshvara, Vajrasattva, and Bar Sam Drol Sum prayers all carry with them a very modest suggested offering. We will never turn away anyone in need, if you require further assistance please don’t hesitate to reach out to our friendly prayer coordination team.

Mantra Cards

Phakchok Rinpoche has kindly authorized that students may chant the mantras for these deities in conjunction with prayer requests. It is always good to receive a transmission of the deity mantra from a qualified lama, but it is also highly meritorious to sincerely invoke the presence of these buddhas and bodhisattvas with a trusting heart.
