Amitayus Retreat

Amitayus Retreat


with Gen Kelsang Dornying

16-17 March |

On this two-day retreat, we have the opportunity to increase our lifespan, merit and wisdom, through the special meditation practice of Buddha Amitayus. Our human life is our most precious possession because it gives us the opportunity to improve ourself and attain the supreme happiness of enlightenment. We therefore need a long and healthy life.

To engage successfully in spiritual practice we also need wisdom, as well as the merit or good fortune that gives our mind the strength to support the growth of inner realizations. Amitayus is the Buddha of long life, merit, and wisdom. By engaging in Amitayus practice, we can develop these qualities and eventually attain the deathless state of enlightenment. We can also use this practice to help remove obstacles that endanger the lives of others, especially our close friends and family.

There are three retreat sessions on each day, each consisting of chanted prayers and silent mantra recitation. The first session on Saturday will include an introductory talk by Gen Kelsang Dornying. All those attending the retreat will receive blessed long life pills which will be distributed at the end of the final session on Sunday.

Everyone welcome!
