Amitabha Practice

 

Amitabha Buddha is bright red in color. Within the circle of the five Buddha families, Amitabha is the Buddha of Infinite Light who presides over the western Buddha realm of the Pure Land of Great Bliss, known as Dewachen. He bears this name Infinite Light, because the light radiating from his body pervades all the pure lands of all the Buddhas of those ten directions.

 

Many eons ago, he manifested the Pure Land of Great Bliss at the time he accomplished Buddhahood. After death, faithful devotees of Amitabha are born into the pure land, where they receive teachings from Amitabha himself and from countless other Buddhas inhabiting this realm.Experiencing none of cyclic existence and forever free from having to take lower rebirth, these fortunate beings progress irreversibly toward enlightenment and eventually attain Buddhahood.

 

Also, Drigar Thubten Dargye Ling hosts an annual retreat on the practice of Amitabha with H.E Garchen Rinpoche. This is an important and highly beneficial opportunity.
