Pure Lands in Buddhism are specific type of realm or field of a particular buddha who resides and teaches there for the happiness and benefit of all beings.  One of the most well-known pure lands is Dewachen (Tibetan) or Sukhavati (Sanskrit), the pure land of Buddha Amitabha.  Buddha Shakyamuni taught about pure lands, and these teachings are contained within the Mahayana sutras.  A pure land is a realm where the conditions are such that beings can more easily and quickly progress along the path to enlightenment.  Thus, there are many practices that focus on cultivating the aspiration to be reborn in Dewachen or another pure land.  During this weekend intensive, Geshe-la will provide description and explanation about pure lands from the perspective of Tibetan Buddhism as well as the factors and practices needed to take rebirth in one.  As always, Geshe-la will provide ample time for questions and discussion.  This is a rare opportunity for students of all levels to receive teachings on this topic.
