This spring, Gen Kelsang Kunden will grant the blessing empowerment of Medicine Buddha and give a commentary on how to engage in a daily practice of Medicine Buddha.
Buddha taught that all physical and mental diseases and their subsequent suffering, are caused by our negative minds. Through connecting to Medicine Buddha and through receiving his powerful blessings, we can weaken and eventually abandon these negative minds, the source of all our suffering. By relying sincerely on Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind and heal ourselves of these inner diseases and give us the ability to help others do the same.
This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy.
In the afternoon commentary, our Resident Teacher, Gen Kelsang Kunden, 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. Everyone is welcome to attend regardless of background or previous experience.
