Transference of Merits for the Departed

August 18, 2024 @ 7:30 pm

Idam me vo ñātinam hōtu, sukhitā hontu ñātayo​

Let this merit accrue to my/our departed relatives and may they be happy.

In the tapestry of Buddhist beliefs and practices, one thread shines brightly as a beacon of compassion and filial piety: the act of transferring merits to departed relatives.

Central to Buddhist philosophy is the concept of karma – the law of cause and effect. Actions, whether positive or negative, have consequences that reverberate throughout existence. 

Merits (punya or puñña in Pali), in Buddhist terms, refers to the positive energy generated by virtuous deeds, thoughts, and intentions. It is believed that accumulating merit contributes to one’s spiritual well-being and progression towards enlightenment.
