13th – 17th of April 2017
with Gen Losang Kelsang

On this extended Easter Weekend we have the special opportunity to receive the Empowerment of Buddha Amitayus and commentaries to the practice from Gen Losang Kelsang.

There will be several guided meditations and teaching sessions every day as well as a session with chanted prayers. During break times each participant helps with small jobs and there is plenty of time to go for walks and to discuss with other practitioners.

The course will be held in English and translated alternating into German. And simultaneous translation in Italian or French will also be available through headset.
The course will start on March 13th with supper at 6 pm, followed by the introduction at 8.15 pm and will finishes on the 17th with lunch.

Merit jobs:
Kailash IRC is a non-profit charity and the Retreat Centre, B&B and courses are all run by a few volunteers. Therefore it is common practice during an event at Kailash IRC that every participant helps with some jobs (e.g. chopping vegetables, washing dishes, tidying up etc.) and the final cleaning at the end of the course.
