We all would like a long and healthy life but we need wisdom to see how to use our life in the most meaningful way. We also need merit, or good fortune, to give our mind the strength to support our spiritual development. We can develop these qualities by relying upon Amitayus, the Buddha of long life, merit and wisdom. We can also use this practice to help remove obstacles endangering the lives of others, especially our close friends and family.
In this Amitayus retreat, Kelsang Tabkay will guide essential meditations in this practice to guide us to these profound experiences.
10:00-11:30am – Session 1
12:00-1:30pm – Session 2
