Menlha Kadampa Buddhist Center Prayers

"In general, prayers made by an assembly of many practitioners are very powerful and cannot be compared to the prayers of one or two people. The scriptures give the analogy of a broom. If we try to clean a floor with a few bristles we shall make little progress, but if we gather many bristles to make a broom we shall be successful.”

–Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, from the book Living Meaningfully, Dying Joyfully

There is no charge to join group prayers.
