Rigpa Prayer Request Service

flag Text small  flag Text small GER  flag Text small SPA

Lerab Ling is home to a thriving community of monastic and lay 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 are 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:


    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.


    Your request will be carried out within 24 hours during our daily group practices, according to one of the most ancient lineages of the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Those who perform the practices are trained in directing prayers, chanting the liturgies, playing musical instruments and performing the associated rituals.

    Every request is read out or projected onto screens for a number of days, or on a specific day you request. Additionally, all names are sent periodically to some monasteries in India, Sikkim and Nepal, with which Rigpa holds a close connection. There the names are also included in their daily practices, practice intensives, and ceremonies.

    Please note that while we cannot guarantee the effectiveness of the prayers, we receive many testimonies from people who experienced positive effects and felt very much supported.


    It is only thanks to your donation that we can offer and uphold this prayer request service. Following the tradition reaching back to the times of the Buddha, donations support the Lerab Ling practitioners, as well as the temple and its sacred environment. A part of your contribution is also used to support the related monasteries and ceremonies in the East.

    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 or projected 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 or projected 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 monastic community and lay practitioners. 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 This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., so we can see who we are praying for.

    Practice for the Swift Accomplishment of Activity
    Requests for this practice are read out for two weeks during our daily practice of Zabtik Drolchok, the Profound Essence of Tara. This is a popular practice of Green Tara that was revealed as a mind terma by Chokgyur Dechen Lingpa (1829-1870). It is considered to be especially beneficial for the accomplishment of one’s projects and activities.

    Practice for Long Life
    Requests for this practice are read out for two weeks during our daily practice of Chime Pakme Nyingtik, the Heart Essence of the Sublime Lady of Immortality. This is a long-life practice of White Tara that was discovered as a mind terma by Jamyang Khyentse Wangpo (1820-1892). Many masters have been able to remove obstacles to their long life and enhance their accomplishments through this sadhana.

    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.

    Prayers and Practices in the East
    In addition to the prayers and practices that you can sponsor in Lerab Ling, the Prayer Request team facilitates in requesting divinations on what practices would be appropriate and favourable for you to sponsor in monasteries in the East.

    For these particular practices, before you make a donation, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Depending on the outcome of the divination, you can sponsor prayers and practices that will be carried out by the monastic community at Nubri Gompa in Nepal.

    If you need help with any of the above, you can contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
