This retreat is a wonderful opportunity to learn to rely on Amitayus, the Buddha of long life, merit and wisdom.
In this special retreat we have the opportunity to increase our lifespan, merit 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. 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 gives our mind the strength to support the growth of inner realisations.
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 endangering the lives of others, especially our close friends and family.
During a retreat we reduce our normal worldly activities and concentrate for a period of time on developing spiritual qualities and peaceful minds – finding happiness from within. You are welcome to drop in for any or all of the retreat sessions and there is no charge. Everyone is welcome to enjoy this special opportunity.
There are three sessions a day. Each session lasts for one and a half hours and consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent meditation.
