Empowerment and Teachings of Buddha Akshobya: Raising Wind Horse Energy Retreat

May 27 - May 29

Empowerment and Teachings of Buddha AkshobyaAccording to the Lineage of the Great Master Vidyadhara Longsal Nyingpo
Bestowed by Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Dongyal Rinpoche
Akshobya is the unshakeable Buddha of the East who purifies all negative karma, particularly that related with heavy suffering and rebirth in the lower realms. Buddha Shakyamuni highly praised Akshobya in many teachings, saying that just hearing his name and mantra would bring joy and peace to oneself and others, purify negative karma, and help with those who are sick and dying. Connecting with Buddha Akshobhya will also help animals achieve higher rebirth.
Weekend activities will include raising new prayer flags around all of Padma Samye Ling, as well as performing smoke offering ceremonies with Ven. Khenpo Tsewang Rinpoche.
