Buddha Amitayus Empowerment

Saturday, March 13
with Resident Teacher, Gen Norden

You are welcome to attend just for the morning Empowerment session, or stay for the whole day. Join for the live stream, or register in advance and watch in your own time any time for seven days after.

Buddha Amitayus is the Buddha of long life, wisdom, and good fortune. These are three essential qualities that we need to lead a happy and meaningful life.

It is very important that we have a long and healthy life. There is nothing more important to us than our life and because we are fortunate enough to have a precious human life, we possess the opportunity to enter, make progress on, and complete the spiritual path.

To make our life meaningful we also need wisdom. Everyone needs wisdom. Wisdom never deceives us and, as an inner Spiritual Guide, helps us to make correct decisions in life leading us in the direction of true happiness.

Additionally, the ability to fulfil our wishes easily will only come if we have positive mental energy, good fortune (merit), and good karma in our mind.

Through receiving the empowerment of Buddha Amitayus and engaging in the meditation practices associated with this Buddha we can learn to increase our own life span, wisdom, and merit. Through doing so we can swiftly complete the spiritual path for the benefit of ourselves and others.
