Special Amitabha Practice Saturday, October 25 11:30 am to 12:30 pm
Please join us this Saturday for a special practice of Amitabha. This practice is open to everyone. No empowerment is necessary.
is the Buddha of Infinite Light who presides over the western Buddha realm of
the Pure Land of Great Bliss, known as Dewachen. Amitabha
is considered the protector of beings who call upon him as they experience
death and the after-death transitions in the bardo. Amitabha is also central to
the practice of Phowa (the transference of consciousness at the time of death).
Amitabha and related practices work with the enlightened energy of
discriminating wisdom and the deluded energy of attachment. Through Amitabha
practices, our deluded grasping and attachment are transmuted into the
clear-sighted warmth of true loving compassion.
