Prayers Requests

Dzogchen Beara is home to a community of spiritual practitioners, following one of the most ancient lineages of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. We observe a daily schedule of meditation and prayers, aimed at the well-being and happiness of all beings, irrespective of their religious orientation.
The motivation and aim of every Buddhist practitioner is directed towards the ultimate and lasting happiness of all beings. Your request for prayers is held in this highest of all aspirations.
You can request prayers for yourself, those close to you, your projects or your pets:
(For loved ones who are sick, operations, removing obstacles in difficult life circumstances, end of life difficulties)

  • in case of ill health, approaching the end of life, or when experiencing difficulties
  • for the deceased
  • to ask the Dharma Protectors to support your spiritual path

How to request prayers

The quickest way to request prayers is online where we can immediately act upon your request. Your prayers will be carried out within 24 hours or on a specific date that you may ask for.
In the ‘comments and dedication’ section at the bottom of the online page, you can enter the names of those to pray for and the reason. This will help us to direct our prayers more specifically. For deceased, please let us know the date of passing.

Praying yourself is considered to be the most powerful because of your direct connection with the person or situation that needs support and the strength of your intention.

Prayers on your behalf will be carried out during the following practices:

Prayers for ill health, approaching the end of life, averting difficulties
Requests for this practice are read out for 7 days during the daily Tendrel Nyesel practice which is the main practice of the Rigpa community. It is a terma revealed by Tertön Sogyal, Lerab Lingpa (1856-1926), and is especially aimed at eliminating and transforming inauspicious circumstances by invoking Guru Rinpoche, together with the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas, and all the mandalas of the Hundred Peaceful and Wrathful Deities, including Tsokchen Düpa, Lama Gongdü and Kagyé.

Practices for the deceased
The name of the deceased is read out during the daily Riwo Sangchö practice for 3 days in a row and then for 7 consecutive weeks on the weekday of their passing. The terma of Riwo Sangchö (Mountain Smoke Offering) is a profound practice of offering and purification and was revealed by the tertön Lhatsün Namkha Jikmé (1597-1653).
Additionally, the name is included for 7 weeks in the Dukngal Rangdrol practice, held every week by a specialist group of senior members of the practising community. The practice of Dukngal Rangdrol (Self-Liberation of Suffering) is based on the Buddha of Compassion, Avalokiteshvara, and is a terma from the Longchen Nyingtik cycle, revealed by Jikmé Lingpa (1729-1798).
You are welcome to send a photograph of the deceased to  so we can see who we are praying for.

Dharma Protectors Practices
Dharma Protectors are emanations of the Buddha whose role it is to protect the teachings and those who practise them and to support practitioners in attaining spiritual realisation. These practices are performed every day by a group of specially trained practitioners in a dedicated shrine room.
