MEDICINE BUDDHA EMPOWERMENT
Healing Ourself and Others
ABOUT THE EMPOWERMENT
According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, both mental and physical, are caused by our negative minds. Normally our negative minds can feel deeply ingrained, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha, we can experience the pure nature of our mind and heal ourselves of these inner diseases. Such healing will enable us to help others.
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, our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Zopa, will explain the profound tantric practice known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha. The empowerment will take place in the morning, followed by commentary in the afternoon.
