Amitayus retreat – Long Life, Good Health Good Fortune, with Gen Kelsang Mila
Feb 11 @ 10:00 am - 3:15 pmR90.00 – R200.00
A Special Method for Increasing Life Span, Wisdom, and Merit
Saturday 11th – February 2023
This Tantric retreat is an opportunity to focus on the meditation practice of Amitayus, the Buddha of Immeasurable Life, which is a special method for increasing our lifespan, wisdom and merit.
‘Amitayus’ means ‘Infinite Life’ and signifies that by relying on this holy being we will not only overcome the dangers of untimely death in this life, but eventually through Tantric practice attain the pure illusory body – a vajra body that is permanently free from aging, sickness, and death.
By engaging in the practice of Buddha Amitayus we also accumulate profound wisdom and extensive merit.
