Amitayus Retreat - Increase Long Life, Good Fortune & Wisdom
Khedrubje Centre •  25th -26th Mar • 7am-5.30pm (3 sessions each day) • By Donation

We all wish for a long and healthy life, we also need wisdom to make that life meaningful, and good fortune to give our mind spiritual power and strength. We can develop these qualities by relying upon Amitayus, the Buddha of long life, merit and wisdom. This practice can also help to remove obstacles endangering the lives of others, especially our friends and family.
Each session consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent mantra recitation. All those attending will receive long life pills at the conclusion of retreat. You are welcome to drop in for any or all of the retreat sessions.
