Meditation and recitation ritual

The Guru Puja is a traditional Tibetan Buddhist meditation and recitation ritual. It is an invocation of enlightened beings and an offering ritual to pacify negativities, increase positive qualities and energies, and promote the healing of oneself and the environment. The practice is performed daily in AHMC and weekly in the Kunpen Milan Centre, and is dedicated to inner and world peace. During the offering section a long mantra – Ghanachakra – is recited 108 times. Lama Gangchen Rinpoche initiated this daily recitation dedicated to world peace immediately after the events in New York on the 11th of September 2001. Since then, the mantra has already been recited several million times.

Number of Ghanachakra mantras recited since 11 September 2001 until 19 February 2024

Joyful celebration

The Guru Puja is a wonderful practice for Buddhist followers; a compendium of teachings of the Theravada, Mahayana and Vajrayana traditions. At the same time it is a joyful celebration where everyone who wants can join in. The Guru Puja is practised with a special dedication for world peace but also with special dedications for those who request them. It is possible to be included in the daily dedications by participating in the ‘Garden of Generosity’ campaign.
