Shang Rinpoche will transmit a short Amitabha prayer, taken from the Tibetan lineage of the great Terton Dorje Lingpa. Rinpoche will also give a short talk on this Dharma, its benefits, its history and how to practice it. To our knowledge, this is the first time this Amitabha prayer will have been transmitted in Australia.
The transmission will be preceded by a qigong session led by senior students, followed by a Q&A open to anybody with questions about Qigong, the Amitabha prayer, or anything else.
