Our practice of transferring merit comes out of our experience that there are blessings or “merit” which arise from our spiritual practice. Our tradition teaches that we may offer this merit to others in the conviction that our offering will somehow be of benefit to them in whatever circumstances they may find themselves. You can do this yourself, and/or you can ask for the community’s assistance. If you would like to ask for a transfer of merit for any person, group, animal, etc., please contact the Priory.
