Rather than remaining isolated at home, please join us and help create a mini Summer Festival at Samudra Centre. On successive Saturdays the empowerments of Amitayus and Tara will be granted by the General Spiritual Director and the Deputy Spiritual Director of Kadampa Buddhism. Amitayus prayers and meditation are a special method practice for increasing our merit and lifespan. Tara prayers and meditation are a method practice to protect us from outer and inner fears, as well as to swiftly rescue us from any other problems. By gathering together in a special place to receive these empowerments, collectively we will create a powerful spiritual energy.

In order to attend, you must pre-register for the Summer Festival.

Relying upon a qualified Spiritual Guide, is the root of the spiritual path and the foundation of all spiritual attainments. A qualified Spiritual Guide is a person who has gained direct experience and realizations of whatever he or she teaches. Since they possess such attributes, they can offer incredible benefit and assistance in our pursuit of permanent inner peace and freedom from suffering. Unfortunately, qualified Spiritual Guides are rare these days. Therefore, if we identify such a person and rely sincerely upon their instructions, we shall definitely attain all that they have attained. This day course will explore the special power of the Spiritual Guide has to bring great benefit to us.
