“Limitless Life Buddha” or Amitayus is the symbol of the Deathless state, the perfection of wisdom, compassion and good fortune. These are the essential qualities that are needed to lead a happy, healthy, long and meaningful life. The Rigdzin Tsedrub -Guru Rinpoche and Amitayus combined Empowerment comes from an unbroken, pure lineage of the special Longchen Nyingthik tantric terma cycle by Rigdzin Jigme Lingpa of the Nyingthik tradition of the Nyingma Lineage. Jigme Lingpa was a reincarnation of two important masters, Vimalamitra and King Trisong Deutsen. As embodiment of these two figures, Tibet’s primary Dzogchen lineages were combined in him, both of which are contained in the Nyingthik Yabshi.

There is nothing more important to us than our life and because we are fortunate enough to have a precious human life, we possess the opportunity to enter, make progress on, and complete the spiritual path. To make our life meaningful everyone needs wisdom. Wisdom never deceives us and, as an inner Spiritual Guide, helps us to make correct decisions in life leading us in the direction of true happiness.

Additionally, the ability to fulfil our wishes easily will come if we have positive mental energy, good fortune (merit), and good karma in our mind. Through receiving the empowerment of Buddha Amitayus and the confluence of the blessings of the unbroken lineage, the power of the master conferring the empowerment, the devotion and confidence of the recipients of the empowerment, obstacles to a stable and long life can be averted and energy loss on the physical, psychic and spiritual levels can be restored. By engaging in the meditation practices associated with this Buddha we can learn to increase our own life span, wisdom, and merit. Through doing so we can swiftly complete the spiritual path for the benefit of ourselves and others.

Fundraising appeal to repair Amitabha Retreat Center in Nepal Opak Kyilkhor Chöling

Opak Kyilkhor Choling, Nepal

The magnificent Buddha Amitabha temple and retreat center built in Nepal by His Eminence Ayang Rinpoche and consecrated in May 2013, was seriously damaged during the 2015 Nepal earthquakes.

Due to Rinpoche’s foresight in building to the highest engineering standards, the retreat cottages were undamaged, as was the major temple structure. However, the superb frescoes and other artwork did suffer major damage, and there was considerable cracking in the structure. [View more photographs of the damage here.]

With the recent re-opening of the India-Nepal highway, work can now begin to repair the temple. We appeal to the generosity of all students and supporters of Rinpoche to assist in this great work. Even if you made an offering to support this work last year, please consider how this retreat center was created due to the great vision of H.E. Chöje Ayang Rinpoche and will benefit countless beings, not only in the present day, but for generations to come.

Shitro – 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities Puja in Bylakuppe

From February 16-23, Ayang Rinpoche’s monastery in Bylakuppe, South India will hold the Shitro (100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities) puja to welcome in Losar and celebrate Chötrul Düchen, one of the four holy Buddhist festivals commemorating significant events in the life of the Buddha. During the first fifteen days of the year, the Buddha displayed miracles for his disciples to increase their devotion. During this time, it is believed that the effects of positive or negative actions are multiplied ten million times.

“It [Shitro] is the essence of the 6,400,000 Dzogchen tantras, and merely hearing this teaching cuts through birth in the lower realms; merely understanding it causes one to travel to the ground of great bliss (mahasukha); bringing its meaning to mind causes one to accomplish the irreversible state of the spontaneously arisen awareness holder.  For everyone who connects with this teaching there will be great purpose and meaning.” H.E. Ayang Rinpoche, 2009 (Trans. Tyler Dewar).  Read a short teaching on the 100 Peaceful and Wrathful Deities from Ayang Rinpoche’s 2009 Karma Lingpa Shitro empowerment in Garrison, NY.

True Lhamo said, “Any one who has family members, friends or loved ones who have died and would like to make donations and dedicate it to them, it is the best opportunity.
