This 5 week course will cover the special and profound meditation method which was taught by previous Kalu Rinpoche.
Using the 5 Elements as the basis for meditation, through classes that combine both lecture and meditation sessions we will look at how the elements are experienced in the Bardo of Dying and the Bardo of Rebirth - and explore their symbolic meanings as it relates to our spiritual path.

Amitabha Winter Retreat

Buddha Amitabha Winter Retreat @KKC Burnaby
With Lama Tenzin
December 23 to 26, 2016

We invite you to join us for a Buddha Amitabha retreat over the holiday season.
His name means "Limitless Light". In Tibetan Vajrayana Buddhism Amitabha is considered one of the five Dhyani Buddhas (together with Akshobhya, Amoghasiddhi, Ratnasambhava and Vairocana), representing 5 enlightened qualities of our enlightened nature.

When one has developed the awareness of knowing everything as it manifests, one has developed the clarity of boundless light, which is completely free from confusion. This realization is described as 'o padme' or 'boundless light'. It is traditionally taught that doing the Buddha Amitabha practice is one of the most effective ways to achieve liberation from the suffering of samsara.

The retreat starts Friday evening and ends on Monday morning.

Cost for whole program: $125 includes teachings and meals (we can offer 1 retreat accommodation at a rate of $175)
