Long Life, Good Fortune and Wisdom
South African National Festival
Friday 17 May – Sunday 19 May
Tushita Kadampa Meditation Centre, 47 Trill Road, Observatory
Over this special national weekend event, with International Teacher, Gen-la Kelsang Kunsang, we will discover how we can overcome our faults and limitations and become a source of peace and happiness for all living beings, through identifying with our pure potential, and we will prepare our minds to receive the blessing empowerment of Buddha Amitayus.
Amitayus is the Buddha of long life, merit and wisdom. Through receiving the empowerment and engaging in the practice of Buddha Amitayus, we can develop these qualities and eventually attain the deathless state of enlightenment. The Yoga of Buddha Amitayus is also a special method for increasing the positive power of our mind, helping us to find pure peace and happiness.
Everybody is welcome.
