Buddhist Deity: Amitayus Buddha (Rechung Tradition)

Amitayus Buddha (Rechungpa Tradition) | Rechung Nyan Gyu Lineage Set | Amitayus (Rechung Lineage)

The Amitayus Tradition of the Yogi Rechungpa was acquired by Rechungpa, a principal student of Milarepa, during a trip to India. On his return to Tibet he gave the transmission to Milarepa which is why Rechungpa comes before Milarepa in the lineage.
