Medicine for the Mind
Blessing Empowerment of Medicine Buddha
Saturday 9th & Sunday 10th December
When the world is pervaded entirely by problems and dangers, due to uncontrolled minds and inappropriate actions, one of the most important practices is that of Medicine Buddha.Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche
According toÂ BuddhaÂ all disease and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our delusions such as anger. Normally, these delusions feel deeply ingrained.
But through connecting toÂ MedicineÂ BuddhaÂ we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.
This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy.
During the commentary Kelsang Jampel will explain the profound tantric practice, known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha.
The special weekend event will begin with an introduction to the empowerment on Saturday afternoon. The empowerment will take place on Sunday morning, followed by commentary to the practice.
