About the Event
For those who have not received the Amitabha initiation, you can attend the last session of the retreat on Sunday June 5th at 6:00PM. It will also be possible to participate in the retreat online through Zoom, you do not need to register to be able to attend the retreat online.
The goal of the retreat is to try to accumulate 108'000 recitations of the mantra of Amithaba in three days (11 sessions). For those attending in person, you can choose to stay overnight at the center or go back home to sleep after each day is finished. Please note that if you go back home you should only go back and sleep and not do any other non-retreat related activities (such as grocery shopping, cooking, etc).
The fee for the retreat is 30$ per day to cover the food costs (breakfast, lunch and dinner will be provided) as well as the offerings. You can pay the fee in person when you come to the Center.
