At Korinji monastery the residents conduct a daily chanting service. We are happy to add your name, or the name of anyone you know who is facing challenging circumstances, to our daily dedication.


We additionally conduct Buddhist ceremonies as a service to our larger community. Ceremonies marking life passages such as weddings and memorial services, healing ceremonies, rituals for difficult circumstances, blessings of a house or place of business, and rituals to address unexplained phenomena are all things it is possible to request.

Contact us to request a prayer dedication, or to discuss the possibility of a Buddhist ceremony. There is no fee for these services, but should you wish to make a donation to support the monastery at any time that of course that is very welcome.
