Ven. Lama Kunga Rinpoche will kindly bestow the Empowerment of Amitabha Buddha. This will be followed by instruction on the practice of PHOWA, the intentional transference of consciousness at the time of death. 

The Empowerment of Amitabha Buddha is at 10:00 am.  Please arrive early to register.

LUNCH break–11:30 am to 1:30 pm

The Phowa Teaching is from 1:30 pm to about 3:30 pm.

NOTE:  Everyone is welcome.  You may receive the Empowerment alone (and not the Phowa Teaching), but attending the Phowa Teaching requires the Empowerment. No exceptions.

Requested Donation:  $30 for the Empowerment OR $60 for the entire day.  Dana (offering to the Lama) is separate.

Amitabha, (Tibetan–འོད་དཔག་མེད, Ö-pa-me), is the Buddha of Infinite Radiant Light. He resides in Dewachen, བདེ་བ་ཅན། (Sanskrit-Sukhavati), the Blissful Pure Land.

Phowa (འཕོ་བ)  is a method of practice at the time of death to ensure that a person’s consciousness leaves the body through the crown and transfers into a Buddha-field.  This teaching aims for Amitabha’s Pure Land.

Our lives are short. The time of death is uncertain. By learning and practicing Phowa, we can help ourselves and others feel more confident in death.
