BUDDHA AMITAYUS PRACTICE
Saturday and Sunday, December 14 & 15, 2019
with Ven. Lama Kalsang
Ven. Lama Kalsang
will lead two special Buddha Amitayus
practices on Saturday and Sunday morning, December 14 & 15, instead of our regular weekend practices.
Amitayus, Buddha of Boundless Life, is regarded as the Sambhogakaya aspect of Amitabha Buddha, the Buddha of Boundless Light. In the traditional Tibetan tanka images, Amitayus is often depicted as red in color as the rays of rising sun, seated in a meditation posture, holding a long life vase filled with the elixir of immortality. “Boundless Life” refers to his blessings and virtue.
The format of both practices
on Saturday and Sunday will be the same, so you can either come on Saturday or Sunday, or both. There will be a food offering ritual (TSOK) during the practice. If you wish to participate in the tsok offering you are welcome to bring some fruit or little cookies for the occasion. The Amitayus Retreat text
will be used for this practice. No prerequisite or prior experience is required to participate. Lama Kalsang also mentioned that if you have a ritual item “Datta” as shown in this picture you are welcome to bring it to the practice.
SATURDAY & SUNDAY, Dec 14 & 15
10:00am – 11:30am — Buddha Amitayus Practice with food offering
