Amitayus Retreat

Saturday 23 January – Sunday 24 January

On this retreat we have the opportunity to increase our lifespan, merit and wisdom, through the special meditation practice of Buddha Amitayus.

The Retreat Topic

There is nothing more precious than our life. Because we have a precious human life, we have the opportunity to experience both temporary and ultimate happiness. We usually regard material possessions as very important and put much effort into acquiring them, but in reality our human life is our most important possession. If we lose our life, we shall have no opportunity to enjoy a human life, to practice Buddha’s teachings and to actualise our potential for enlightenment. Therefore in order to complete our spiritual journey to temporary and ultimate happiness we need to increase our lifespan, merit and our wisdom. The principal method for doing this is the Yoga of Amitayus.

The Sessions

This retreat is held over two days at our modern temple in Spring Hill. There are three sessions each day. You are welcome to drop in for any or all of the retreat sessions and there is no charge. Each session lasts for an hour and a half and consists of chanted prayers sung in English and silent periods for meditation. Prayer booklets will be available to help you in your retreat session. We suggest that you arrive five to ten minutes before the sessions so that you can get settled before they begin.
