The monks of Drepung Loseling Monastery performed a powerful ceremonial puja for healing on Tuesday, June 29 at 7:00 p.m at Unity Church in Buffalo, New York. 

In the Tibetan world, all practitioners associated with the healing profession seek out this empowerment, and then practice the associated mantra on a daily basis in order to enhance personal healing power.  Participants submitted names of family, friends and individuals for whom they wished to dedicate prayers for health and healing. This ceremony was a guided meditative healing experience, with sacred chanting in the Tibetan language, as well as music performed by the visiting monks

 
Unity Buffalo is spiritually centered, to celebrate a world of love, peace and abundance.  Their mission is a diverse, loving, spiritual community empowering growth, transformation and peaceful living.  Unity honors the individual truths in all religions and respects each individual's right to choose a spiritual path.
 
Drepung is the largest of all Tibetan monasteries and is located on the Gambo Utse mountain, 5 kilometers from the western suburb of Lhasa.  About 40% of the old monastic town was destroyed after the Chinese arrived in Lhasa in 1951, though luckily the chief buildings including the four colleges, the Tsokchen and the the Dalai Lamas' residence were preserved. Drepung Loseling is dedicated to the study and preservation of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition of wisdom and compassion.  
The Tibetan culture is endangered and leads a fragile existence in the exiled refugeed communities in India and Nepal.
