About the Retreat
In this blissful one-day retreat we have the opportunity to increase our life span, merit (good karma), 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 ourselves and attain the supreme happiness of enlightenment, thus being in a position to help everyone! 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 strengthens our mind and supports the growth of spiritual realizations.
This retreat will also be specially dedicated to the long life of the founder of Kadampa Buddhism in this modern world, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso.
Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso—affectionately known as Geshe-la—has devoted his entire life to the study, practice and flourishing of Kadampa Buddhist teachings throughout the world. Through his great dedication and skill, everyone—regardless of race, nationality, culture, age, or gender—has the opportunity to practice scientifically-proven methods for solving the problems of daily life that ultimately lead to true and lasting happiness. May he live for a very long time!
Everyone is welcome to attend this event regardless of meditation experience.
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 friends, family and teachers.
