Vairochana Buddha

This major ritual is especially beneficial for the deceased. It purifies negative deeds committed in the past life and helps to acquire better rebirth. It also helps minimize suffering and anxiety during the intermediate (Bardo) stage between death and rebirth. This ritual is also very effective for someone who is terminally ill. It can be performed by 4 to 8 monks and takes 5 hours. On special occasions or at the request of the sponsor, it may be done over 5 to 7 days in conjunction with the creation of a sand mandala. Associated offerings may be elaborate or simple, but 100 butter lamps are recommended.
