Pujas are prayer rituals which involve visualization, mantra recitation and offerings to enlightened beings (Buddhas & Bodhisattvas). They are performed to receive the blessings of these enlightened beings, to accumulate merit, and to dispel obstacles and negative circumstances for oneself and others. Pujas can be sponsored to benefit oneself or another, for the living or for the dead.

Loppon Lama Dawa is a Karma Kagyü Lineage holder of Vajrayana Buddhism born in Kham, eastern Tibet. The Karma Kagyu Lineage of Tibetan Buddhism traces its origin back to Vajradhara, the primordial Buddha. Its early founders include Tilopa, Naropa, Marpa Lotsawa, Milarepa, and Gampopa. Lama Dawa 's root guru is Vajradhara Tai Situpa Rinpoche. Tai Situpa Rinpoche is one of the highest ranking Lamas of the Karma Kagyü Lineages of tulkus (reincarnated Lamas) in the Kagyü school of Tibetan Buddhism and was instrumental in recognizing Ogyen Trinley Dorje (His Holiness The 17'th Karmapa).
As a youth, Lama Dawa lived and studied at the first Karma Kagyu master Kalu Rinpoche's monastery. He then lived and studied Buddha dharma at Tai Situpa Rinpoche's monastery, Palpang Sherab Ling, for 25 years and completed his three-year retreat to earn his Honorific title "Lama". In 1998, Lama Dawa was asked to come to the Bodhisattva Institute, one of Kalu Rinpoche’s dharma centers, in Tucson, Arizona. A few years later, Lama opened a meditation center called Chokor Ling on the outskirts of Tucson. Lama speaks fluently Tibetan, Chinese and English and has regularly spread Buddhadharma in Santa Barbara, Los Angeles, Orange County, San Diego & San Jose California. Everywhere he goes, Lama Dawa gives the Buddha dharma teachings and Buddhist refuge — the ceremony by which one becomes a Buddhist — as well as the Bodhisattva Promise, the inner commitment to dedicate one’s life to benefit others, with the ultimate goal of the enlightenment of all beings.
Lama Dawa is mastered to teach Buddha dharma, perform many Buddha Initiations & Empowerments, and mastered the art of Phowa (i.e. Transference of consciousness at the time of death.). Phowa is one of the Six Yogas of Naropa. It is said to be the quickest, most direct way to be liberated from samsaric suffering. Also, it is taught that one does not return to the samsaric realms after having entered Amitabha's Pure Land called Dewachen, and that from that realm one can readily achieve enlightenment. So Phowa is like an insurance policy; if one does not achieve enlightenment while alive, one can ensure that this attainment will follow death.
Currently, Lama Dawa resides in Orange County to spread dharma to the Americans, Vietnameses, Koreans, and Taiwaneses & international communities. Lama Dawa is the Director of Nimbus Compassion Foundation, a non-profit religious corporation based in Orange County, California.
