Event Details

The meditation practises on AMITAYUS, followed by all traditions of Tibetan Buddhism date back to the first wave of Dharma into Tibet, 8th century. The Sanskrit word Amita means “infinite “and Ayus means life, existence. Guru Rimpoche meditated with his consort, the Indian princess Mandarava in the Maratika cave and had direct visions of Amitayus, who conferred a direct empowerment on both. Centuries later, the direct disciple of Milarepa received the transmission from Tipupa (pigeon master) in India.  Tipupa was a follower of Siddharani, the mystic female Mahasiddha from Nepal who received direct visions from the deity to create the TSEWANG, the Long Life Initiation. The practise results in immortality, which in tantric Buddhism does not mean that one lives forever but that one achieves the light-body

This weekend will focus on “Mar.tang” style of painting, which means gold lines on a red background.
