Having received Amitabha empowerment is necessary to receive teachings on this practice and to preform it.
Amitabha Buddha practices are among the most spread ones in the countries of Mahayana Buddhism. Sutras and mantras of Amitabha are recited in many temples. This activity is planting a seed of quick purification of negative karma and making one's spiritual path more profound in this very life. It also bring benefit of being reborn in the "Pure Land of Great Happiness" – Dewachen.
Sadhana that will be preformed is a terma discovered by the terton Mingyur Dorje. It belongs to the highest tantras (annutarayogatantra), but it combines elements of sutra and tantra style of practise at the same time.

The practice will take place in four sessions a day. In additional sessions, teachings about the process of dying and bardo as well as advices how to help those who are passing away will be given.
