Amitayus means an immeasurable life span. When we open our heart to Buddha Amitayus’ guidance, he will help us increase our wisdom, our merit (our ability to fulfill our wishes), and, most importantly, he will help us protect our most precious possession — our life. Through his blessings, we increase our energy and lifespan with which to complete the spiritual path.
“An empowerment bestows upon us special blessings that heal our mental continuum and awaken our Buddha nature.” — Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
The empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we make a direct connection with this sublime Buddha, and receive powerful blessings. Empowerments create the opportunity to receive blessings and build our connection to enlightened beings who provide us with assistance on the spiritual path. Everyone is welcome!
