WEEKEND MEDITATION COURSE IN ALBUQUERQUE
FRIDAY & SATURDAY, APRIL 2 & 3 / LIVE & IN-PERSON
with Gen Kelsang Chokyan
Amitayus means ‘immeasurable life span’. When we open our heart to Buddha Amitayus' guidance, he helps us increase our wisdom, our merit (our ability to fulfill our wishes) and most importantly, helps protect our most precious possession—our life. Through his blessings, we increase our energy and lifespan with which to complete the spiritual path.
The greatest obstacles to the fulfillment of our wish to experience pure happiness are death and ignorance. Death destroys our opportunity to take the essence of our precious human life, and ignorance destroys our opportunity to develop a pure experience of Dharma.
To overcome these obstacles, we need to increase our lifespan and our wisdom, and the principal method for doing this is the yoga of Buddha Amitayus, which is also a special method for increasing the positive power of our mind, or merit.
The Empowerment is a special blessing ceremony during which we make a personal connection with enlightened beings, creating the opportunity for us to receive extraordinary wisdom blessings and tremendous assistance on the spiritual path.
Following the empowerment will be subsequent commentary that focuses on how we can engage in the special practice, The Yoga of Buddha Amitayus, to continuously connect with Buddha Amitayus and receive his blessings in our daily life.
