Please join us for this short one-day retreat on Buddha Amitayus, the Buddha of long life and special wisdom. We all need a long life to allow us to practice Dharma (Buddha's teachings), and to attain liberation and enlightenment. Without a long life we lose our opportunity to take the essence of our precious human life. To overcome this obstacle we need to increase our life-span and our wisdom, and the principle method for doing this is the yoga of Buddha Amitayus.
The retreat will be led by American Buddhist monk Kelsang Wangpo, and consist of four 75 minute sessions using the sadhana (prayer) The Yoga of Buddha Amitayus, mainly emphasizing mantra recitation.
No experience is necessary, and all are welcome. Cost is $5/session or $15 for the whole retreat.
Session times will be: 12 to 1:15pm, 2 to 3:15, 4 to 5:15, 7 to 8:15pm.
