Amitayus is the Buddha of Long Life, Merit and Wisdom, three of the main attributes we need to attain the happiness of enlightenment. It is traditional, and considered highly auspicious, to make prayers to Buddha Amitayus near the beginning of a new year – for everyone, including ourselves, to enjoy a long life endowed with good fortune and great wisdom.
We will also be taking the opportunity this year to make special prayers and dedications for the long life of our Founder, Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
At each session we will chant these beautiful prayers, as well as reciting special mantras to Buddha Amitayus.
Everyone is welcome to join us in this age-old and very meaningful practice.
Session times (each session will last approx. an hour)
9:00 am, 11:00 am, 2:30 pm
