Jamgön Kongtrul Rinpoche and Amitabha retreat

On the 5th November 2017 we were honored by the visit of the 4th Jamgön Kongtrul Rinpoche. He blessed the centre and gave the reading transmission (lung) for the long Amitabha practice which marked for us the beginning of a one-month Amitabha retreat.

During the first two weeks of this retreat we were practicing the four sessions all together in our big meditation hall. Like this everybody got well acquainted with the whole ritual learning the visualizations, melodies, instruments and so on. During the second part each practitioner could deepen what he has learned by practicing three sessions in his own room and meeting once a day in the Temple.
The atmosphere was very joyous and harmonious during the time, please have a look at the pictures below.
