Pujas & Rituals

Buddhist rituals, known as pujas, take place regularly at She Drup Ling. Puja means “worship” or “devotion“. Usually it is an offering ritual. In the simplest case, the offering consists of flowers and incense and is usually accompanied by prayers.

In Tibetan Buddhism, the practitioner also connects to a specific Buddha aspect through visualisations and meditation. Pujas can be held privately or in public.
It is considered particularly meritorious to perform pujas on Buddhist holidays.

Whether you are a practitioner or just curious, you are warmly invited to participate in our pujas! No registration necessary.
