10.00am - 12.00pm Welcome Ceremony and Amitayus Empowerment Life is most precious to everyone, yet how well and long one may live depends on how skilfully one gathers the very factors that determine quality and lifespan. According to Buddhism, if good deeds, merit and lifespan are coherent, then one can enjoy a happy, healthy and long life. Otherwise, ones life can come to an abrupt end in tragedy and violent death. So Buddhists try to live a non-violent life, practice kindness and receive long life empowerment. People will travel far to receive Amitayus Long Life empowerment especially if it is bestowed by a lineage master. All people are recommended to top up their lifespan with this excellent opportunity.

SundAy 28 ApRIl10.00am - 12.00pm Orange Manjushri Empowerment Knowledge is highly priced and most people spend more than 20 years studying the basics until they learn to have a good profession. But without wisdom to incorporate knowledge with a kind heart, mere technical knowledge cannot necessarily help except to make a living in the mundane world. Today a high percentage of educated people who have well paid jobs in the first world suffer from depression, stress and anxiety. This shows that knowledge without wisdom and compassion can impede the very well being of the person. In Tibetan Buddhism, receiving an empowerment of Bodhisattva Manjushri is a must to bless ones heart and head so that both knowledge and good heart are developed. The Head of the Sakya Lineage is believed to be an emanation of Manjushri. So to receive the empowerment from its Head is a rare opportunity.

2.00pm - 5.30pm Parting from the Four Attachments: Sacred Teachings Manjushri gave to Sachen Kunga Nyingpo Young 12 year old Sachen Kunga Nyingpo was doing a six month meditation retreat. It is during that time, that the young boy saw Manjushri in his meditation who urged him to give up the four attachments. The famous four line instruction from Manjushri became a fundamental teachings that attracted a number of commentaries on the four attachments and teaching ways to overcome them. This life, this world, self and opinions are the four attachments that one should learn to sever, for without doing so one is neither a spiritual person, nor has renunciation, nor is endowed with altruism and nor realises the right view to see the truth. This teaching captures the essence of Theravada and Mahayana Buddhist teachings. It is a fundamental teaching recommended for all.
