P’howa: Transference of Consciousness at the Moment of Death

With Chagdud Khadro

August 31 - September 4, 2018

The practice of Chenrezig P’howa is the extraordinary Vajrayana method for attaining rebirth in Amitabha Buddha’s pure realm. P’howa means transferring consciousness from one state to another. At the moment of death, the skillful means of the “P’howa of three recognitions” allows us to direct our consciousness out of our body and into the exalted environment of Amitabha’s enlightened mind. Once enlightened, meditative realization and the capacity to benefit others increase to their ultimate potential.

P’howa accomplishment ensures that we will not die in a state of spiritual uncertainty, drifting helplessly in the after-death bardo. This practice also provides a consummate method to help others when they die.

This is a required retreat for the Magyu Mother Lineage Program.

This retreat is open to all.

Suggested Dana: $150-$200
