What is a Trust Walk

You can sponsor us to pray for the benefit of your family and friends on the sacred ground of the Odiyan Stupa.

Connect to the sacred power of prayers on behalf of someone you love, or for your own well-being. Ask for healing or positive rebirth, business success, financial stability or the health and safety of yourself, your friends, family and country. Sponsor a prayer to benefit a cause close to your heart or a larger wish for the peace and balance of the whole world.

On the morning of a Trust Walk members of our community will begin walking clockwise around (circumambulating) the Odiyan Stupa with your requests in hand, praying for positive fulfillment of your wishes. The walk will continue until all the offerings are completed. Horns and conch shells will call attention to our actions, and the day will be punctuated by the ringing of the Odiyan Stupa bell.

Step by step, we pray for healing and positive change while focusing on your particular intention for a loved one or cause. We will walk with hearts open, and with awareness.

A virtual ocean of blessings radiates fundamentally from the Stupa’s special form, prayer wheels, and the relics of Gautama Buddha and Tibetan masters and envelopes those who walk.

Your intention is supported by the community's dedication to the Buddha, the Dharma and the Sangha and is fueled by the power of the Stupa and its sacred ground.
