In addition to the in-person Celebration, due to the current situation, this Celebration will be live-streamed. This gives those in the Northeast and Mid-Atlantic regions of the United States the opportunity to join the NEDC! Join the gathering of hundreds of people, connecting heart to heart across the region, in receiving Buddha Amitayus’ blessings and receiving and contemplating teachings on the conditions for developing realizations.

All of the Celebration sessions, including the introduction, empowerment, teachings, meditations and Wishfulfilling Jewel Prayers will be available as part of the live-stream event. 

PLEASE NOTE FOR LIVE-STREAM VIEWING: The Amitayus empowerment will only be viewable on Saturday, September 11 from 11:00am-1:00pm EDT. As is the case for those attending the live in-person Celebration, there will be one opportunity only to receive the empowerment. It will not be viewable after this time. If you miss the empowerment at this time, you will not have another chance to view it.

All other sessions, including the introduction, teachings, meditations, and Wishfulfilling Jewel prayers will be available to view until Sunday, September 19 at 11:59pm EDT. See the Celebration schedule
