This will be an in-depth class involving two parts. In the first half of the class, Ven. Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche will give the Buddha Amitabha bisto (blessing) and sojong (24 hour vows). During the second half, he will give instruction and we will practice together. There will be a short break between the sessions.
Traditionally the practice of Buddha Amitabha’s Pure Land is a very popular and powerful practice of Tibetan Buddhism. No matter what lineage or school one follows, this practice is extremely beneficial if someone really wants to be born in the realm of Dewachen in the next life. This is a really simple and easily realizable practice.
