AmitayusAmitayus Prayers

Join us for Amitayus prayers to the Buddha of Long Life, Wisdom and Merit. By engaging in Amitayus practice we can develop these qualities, which are essential for our spiritual development, and eventually attain the deathless state of enlightenment. We can also use this practice to remove obstacles that endanger the lives of others.

Every New Year there is a tradition at Kadampa Buddhist Centers that we create special causes for world peace by relying upon Buddha Amitayus in a short retreat. We engage in Amitayus prayers to prevent untimely death and save the lives of countless living beings. We also increase wisdom, long life and merit. Through the power of Buddha’s blessings, our pure motivation, prayers and mantra recitations, good results will definitely come.

If we are familiar with this practice, we can strengthen our vitality and accumulate positive energy and wisdom. We need these qualities in order to use our precious human life. So we can proceed on the spiritual path without any obstacles.

Everyone is welcome to join us for Amitayus prayers at the Centre.

The Buddha of Compassion


AvalokiteshvaraA wonderful method for receiving the blessings of all the Buddhas is to chant praises and requests to the Buddha of Compassion and to recite his mantra OM MANI PAME HUM

4-armed Avalokiteshvara is an enlightened being who is a manifestation of all Buddhas’ compassion. By relying sincerely upon Avalokiteshvara, the Buddha of Compassion, and reciting his mantra with strong faith, temporarily we will improve our realizations of all the stages of the path, especially our realization of great compassion, and ultimately we will attain supreme Buddhahood in Avalokiteshvara’s Pure Land.

Buddha ShakyamuniThe practice of taking and keeping the eight Mahayana precepts is a special practice of moral discipline that is performed with bodhichitta, the compassionate wish to attain enlightenment for the benefit of all beings. The essence of this practice is taking eight precepts and keeping them purely for twenty-four hours. We first need to receive these precepts from a qualified Preceptor, and then we can take them on our own as often as we wish.

Instructions on both these methods are included in A Pure Life prayer booklet. Because this practice is motivated by bodhichitta, it is especially powerful for purifying negativities, accumulating merit – a positive strength of mind – and creating the cause for us to attain the unsurpassed happiness of enlightenment. This booklet contains a brief explanation of the practice of keeping the eight Mahayana precepts.

This practice is done at 6:30am on the 15th of each month at the Centre.
