Healing Through the Medicine Buddha

For everyone, especially those in the healing arts.

Medicine Buddha, the guru of physicians, was first introduced to Tibet in the eighth century. Since then, Medicine Buddha has become a powerful spiritual healing practice in Tibetan Buddhism.

This program begins with a teaching and transmission by Lama Migmar Tseten on the Medicine Buddha Sutra, emphasizing the healing of sentient beings. Lama Migmar bestows the Medicine Buddha Empowerment to connect with Medicine Buddha and receive the blessings and healing energies of his enlightened light body, mantra, and wisdom. You also receive instruction on the meditation practice of Medicine Buddha.

Learn how to combine the sadhana (spiritual practice) with the technique of blessing medicinal substances to enhance their healing function. This program concludes with Medicine Buddha sadhana and a medicine-blessing ceremony. Please bring any fresh, unopened medicines you might have for this ceremony.
