Pujas for the Dead
Phowa is the practice of directly transferring the consciousness of the deceased to the Pure Land of Buddha Amitabha.
The Jangchok is performed to close the door to karmically habitual tendencies and perceptions of the deceased. The departed are reminded of their true nature, and their negative karmas, afflictions and obscurations are burned away. A brief phowa is part of this practice.
In Sur practice, burnt offerings are made for the benefit of the deceased while in the intermediate state between births (called the bardo). This practice will be performed once daily for 49 days - the length of time it is traditionally said a deceased being spends in the bardo. * Important to note the date of death.
