Buddhist Wedding Blessings

Buddhist Wedding Blessings

A number of newly weds have asked us for wedding blessings from Dagyab Rinpoche. To receive such a blessing one does not have to be a Buddhist. Yet one should have a positive attitude towards Buddhist teachings.

The short wedding ritual always takes place during a public teaching of Rinpoche. During a blessing Rinpoche will recite a sutra used in Tibet during such events. The reading of such a sutra is seen as a direct "word from Buddha" and is therefore regarded as beneficial and healthy.

The couple should first register with the office of Tibethaus. To thank Rinpoche it should e.g. present a bunch of flowers during the ceremony and give a small donation for a social project.
