Long Life Guru Rinpoche-Amitayus Empowerment in Hong Kong


H.E. Chöje Ayang Rinpoche to bestow the Rigdzin Tsedrub Guru Rinpoche-Amitayus combined empowerment of the Longchen Nyingthik tradition

Date: 11 March 2016 (Friday )
Time: 7pm
Venue: Regal Kowloon Hotel, Versailles Ballroom (71 Mody Road, Tsimshatsui, Kowloon, Hong Kong)

“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.

Schedule Change: Phowa and Introducing True Nature of Mind Teachings in Bodhgaya

We are sorry for the inconvenience to those who have already traveled to Bodhgaya to take Ayang Rinpoche’s 10-Levels Amitabha Teachings, but Rinpoche has changed his schedule for Bodhgaya this year. As there are many people from Nepal who wanted to practice Phowa for their loved ones who were lost during the April 2015 earthquake, Rinpoche could not disappoint them and had to change the schedule. He will now be giving his Phowa Course as well as Introducing True Nature of Mind Teachings.

December 24, 2015 – January 1, 2016 XXII Annual Phowa Course in Bodhgaya, the holy place of Shakyamuni Buddha’s enlightenment.

January 2-4, 2016 – Interviews for those wanting to take his Introducing True Nature of Mind teachings. Everyone is required to have an interview before being allowed to attend these teachings.

January 5, 2016 – Introducing True Nature of Mind teachings

January 6, 2016 – Milarepa Tsog Offering Prayer

Download the Flyer and Phowa Course Daily Schedule

This is what Rinpoche wrote regarding taking the Introducing True Nature of Mind course in Bodhgaya. 

“For those people who have not received Introducing True Nature of Mind Teaching from me before, a private interview will be scheduled from 29 December 2015 to 4 January 2016. If you have not received True Nature of Mind from me before, you are not allowed to receive the teaching without an interview. For those people who have received Introducing True Nature of Mind from me before, you can join the teaching if you want, but there is no need for an interview before the teaching.

People who need an Introducing True Nature of Mind interview must register for a particular day and time. When you reach Bodhgaya please register at the Amitabha Temple new construction site to the right of the Kalachakra ground. Please call Truelha at 09939994993 for more information.

When you register for your interview, you will receive a receipt. You must bring your receipt to your Introducing True Nature of Mind interview, and also to the teaching. Without that receipt you cannot attend the teaching.”

Please make your hotel and travel arrangements as soon as possible, as Bodhgaya is always full of pilgrims in December and January.

Rinpoche invites everyone, whether or not they can make a pilgrimage to Bodhgaya this year, to make an auspicious connection by sponsoring the teachings. Rinpoche gives the teachings in Bodhgaya every year free of charge, and your tax-deductible (in the US only) donation will help ensure that these teachings continue for years to come.
