“A mind unruffled by the vagaries of fortune, from sorrow freed, from defilements cleansed, from fear liberated — this is the greatest blessing.”

– Lord Buddha 

About blessing

Blessings, or “Pirith” in Pali, refer to the recitation of sacred texts and verses by our monastic community. These ancient verses are imbued with positive vibrations, fostering an atmosphere of tranquility and serenity. Through these blessings, we seek to invoke protection, promote well-being, and purify the surroundings.


Whether you are celebrating a joyful event, facing challenges, or seeking solace, our temple offers personalized blessings. From weddings and birthdays to healing ceremonies, our compassionate monks conduct rituals tailored to your specific needs.

For the blessing, devotees are also encourage to prepare offerings as part of the blessing ceremony. Devotees may contact our front desk staff for the arrangement or download our guidelines for preparation of the offerings prior to the blessing ceremony.

Transfer of Merits

Transfer of merits (Sanskrit: pariṇāmanā, Pali: pattidāna or pattānumodanā) is a standard part of Buddhist spiritual discipline where the practitioner’s merit, resulting from good deeds, is transferred to deceased relatives, to deities, or to all sentient beings.

Such transfer is done mentally, and it is believed that the recipient can often receive this merit, if they rejoice in the meritorious acts of the person transferring. In Buddhism, merit transfer is seen as a better alternative than mourning. 

Transfer of Merits can either be carried out in BMV or specific location requested by devotees. Prior arrangement need to be made with our front desk staff and we reserve the right to reject the request that is deemed to be unreasonable.  Devotees that wish to know more may go through our guidelines for Transfer of Merits as below.
