Heart Jewel with Meditation
MON, WED, FRI, SAT, Sun
5:30 - 6:30 pm
Heart Jewel is a Kadampa practitioner's daily prayers that contain two essential practices of Kadampa Buddhism revealed by Wisdom Buddha Manjushri: a special Guru yoga of Je Tsongkhapa and a special method for relying upon the Dharma protector, Dorje Shugden. By engaging in these practices regularly and sincerely we will reap a rich harvest of pure Dharma realizations, and eventually, come to experience the supreme joy of full enlightenment.
There is a 15 min pause between the two sets of prayers for silent self-guided meditation.
You can purchase and download a copy of the prayers here. Or you can visit the KMC Phoenix Bookstore to purchase a copy of your own.

Liberation From Sorrow
8th Day of every month
Tara is a female Buddha, a manifestation of the ultimate wisdom of all the Buddhas. Her name means "Rescuer" because she rescues us from all outer and inner fears. Ultimately she rescues us from all suffering and guides us to full enlightenment. Like a mother she protects us from all internal and external dangers; she provides us with all the necessary conditions for our spiritual training, and guides us and inspires us with her blessings as we progress along the spiritual path. These prayers include praises to the twenty-one manifestations of Tara. Because these are Sutra, the actual words of Buddha, they are particularly powerful and blessed.
Join the 24-hour Tara Puja for the Welfare of the World
Streamed from the Kadampa Temple for World Peace at Manjushri KMC - Everyone is welcome to join.
Powa - Prayers for the Deceased
See online calendar for updated times. Through practicing transference of consciousness, known as ‘powa’ with faith, compassion and concentration we can transfer the consciousness of those recently deceased to a higher rebirth or to the Pure Land of a Buddha. The Powa Ceremony can be done either by a group of practitioners or individually on behalf of one or more deceased persons, or countless deceased beings. By engaging in this practice we also create a great collection of virtue, which will also lead us into the pathway to a Buddha’s Pure Land.
