Pariṇāmanā is a Sanskrit term which may be rendered in English as "merit transference" though in common parlance it is rendered as "dedication".

The Pariṇāmanā or 'dedication' is a standard part of Buddhist spiritual discipline or practice where the practitioner's accumulation of merit (S. puňya) is transferred to all sentient beings.

Nomenclature and etymology

Pariṇāmanā (Devanāgarī: परिणामना "transformation; bringing to full development". Tibetan: bsío ba).

Sevenfold Highest Practice

In Buddhism, Pariṇāmanā is "...one aspect of the Sevenfold Highest Practice".

The Sevenfold Highest Practice is an English rendering of Saptavidhā Anuttarapūjā (Devanāgarī: सप्तविधा अनुत्तरपूजा; Tibetan: bla na med pa'i mchod pa rnam pa bdun).
