Amitayus Retreat

In Person and Online

There is nothing more precious than our life. Because we have a precious human life, we have the opportunity to experience both temporary and ultimate happiness. We usually regard material possessions as very important and put much effort into acquiring them, but in reality our human life is our most important possession. If we lose our life, we shall have no opportunity to enjoy a human life, to practice Buddha’s teachings and to actualise our potential for enlightenment. Therefore in order to complete our spiritual journey to temporary and ultimate happiness we need to increase our lifespan, merit and our wisdom. The principal method for doing this is the Yoga of Amitayus.

It is traditional for Kadampa centres to engage in short retreat on this beautiful practice early in the year.

This retreat is unguided. Everyone is welcome to any of the sessions.

For each session, we will engage in the Yoga of Buddha Amitayus, with time for visualisations and mantra recitation as explained in the sadhana.
