Nianfo 24 Hours + 4 Daily Guided Sessions

Online event

We are pleased to let you know that we now have 24 hours Online Nianfo in addition to our 4 daily guided sessions led by volunteer facilitators! So you can join us whenever you like wherever you are.

Nianfo, reciting the Name of Amitabha Buddha (or Amituofo in Chinese), is an effective meditation to help us transform defiled mental states to the name of Amitabha Buddha, which means “Infinite Light & Life”, and which helps to activate our own Buddha nature (awakened original nature), so we can obtain peace of mind in our everyday life.

In the sutras, Shakyamuni Buddha told us that by reciting the name of Amitabha Buddha with faith and vows, one can seek rebirth to Amitabha Buddha’s Land of Ultimate Bliss. Nianfo is the main practice in Pure Land Buddhism, the most popular form of Buddhism in Asia and this lineage has been practiced for over 1600 years in China. Countless people have seen Amitabha Buddha and sought rebirth in the Pure Land.

What participants say:
“Ever since I started doing nianfo I no longer have depression and severe anxiety (including panic attacks) and I am no longer on medication. It has helped me a lot I've been healthier between myself and my marriage. I'm so grateful that I found Amitabha Buddha in life and lead me to this group to learn more about Him. Thanks guys. Amituofo 🙏🙏🙏”
-Virydiana (Jiaze), USA

“Only started on the Buddhist path after my grandma passed away 2 months ago. I was trying to understand why people Nianfo so I searched online and found this group. After practicing Nianfo for a while I notice I develop more awareness on how I carry myself through thoughts and speech. I also become more positive and have less attachment to things. I have a better understanding of how things work and why everything happens for a reason (karma). I also feel calmer within and my faith gradually deepen after reading up all the rebirth cases and attending the Zoom sessions. Thank you guys. Amituofo 🙏🙏🙏”
