Streamed Online | 2:00 – 5:00 pm

There is nothing more precious to us than our life. To those who wish to experience pure happiness, death and ignorance are the greatest obstacles to the fulfilment of their wishes. To overcome these obstacles, we need to increase our lifespan and our wisdom.

The principal method for doing this is the practice of Buddha Amitayus. By engaging in this special annual retreat, we can benefit ourselves and others, through increasing our lifespan, wisdom and merit. Chanted prayers are on audio and booklets are available to follow along. Each session includes pauses for meditation and mantra recitation. Everyone is welcome. By donation only.


Session 1:   2 – 3pm
Session 2:   4pm – 5pm
