The meditation practice of Buddha Amitayus is a profound and effective method for improving our energy, life force and wisdom. The contemplations and meditations contained in the practice enable us to let go of ordinary conceptions so that we can begin to identify with our pure potential.
Through the practice of Amitayus, we can enjoy a long life, wisdom and merit, and free ourselves from inner and outer obstacles. And by improving our own nature, the normal stresses of daily life become easier to manage, and we become empowered to express kindness and concern for others.
