Dedications

Dedications - Chenrezik's treasureAt Kagyu Ling Buddhist Centre we perform regular prayers and meditation practices (pujas), and dedicate the merit for the benefit of all beings.

Requesting a dedication

If you would like us to make a dedication for someone such as a family member or friend, please use the dedication form below or email us: manchester@dechen.org

Dedications are traditionally made for the deceased and dying, for people who are ill, for overcoming obstacles or supporting long life.

Making an offering

It is customary to make an offering to the centre when requesting a dedication.  Offerings will be used to support the running of Kagyu Ling and its programme of activities. You can make a donation online or you can make an offering in person at the Centre – please contact us  if you’d prefer to do this.

Everyone is welcome to sponsor the prayers and pujas. You do not need to be a Buddhist to request a dedication – we welcome requests from the local community and beyond.

To take part in pujas (Vajrayana practices) one needs to have received initiation and instruction from a qualified Buddhist teacher, but it may be possible for you to attend all or part of a puja that you sponsor. Please contact us to ask about this.
