How to Live a Life of Great Good Fortune and Wisdom

For his visit to Barcelona, Gen-la Thubten, is offering very special teachings and showing us how to integrate them into our daily lives.

Gen-la Thubten will guide the post fall festival retreat. We will engage in the practice of Amitayus, Buddha of Long Life. By sincerely relying upon Amitayus and receiving his blessings, we can increase our lifespan, wisdom and positive energy.

REFERENCES · During this retreat-course the teacher will follow the teachings of the book: The New Eight Steps to Happiness by Geshe Kelsang GyatsoBring it along if you own it , if not it is on sale in the KMC in Barcelona.

‘Je Tsongkhapa said that for those who wish to experience pure happiness, the greatest obstacles to the fulfilment of their wishes are death and ignorance. Death destroys our opportunity to take the essence of our precious human life, and ignorance destroys our opportunity to develop a pure experience of Dharma. To overcome these obstacles, we need to increase our lifespan and our wisdom, and the principal method for doing this is the yoga of Buddha Amitayus.’

– From the Introduction to Yoga of Buddha Amitayus sadhana

  • The retreat is open to everybody , it is not necessary to have been at the Fall International Festival before.
  • The teachings will be in English with a simultaneous translation to Spanish and French.
