Medicine Buddha Puja
August 19, 2016 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
An event every 2 weeks that begins at 7:00pm on Friday, repeating indefinitely
The Medicine Buddha, (Sangye Menla), is the Buddha of health and healing, both the outer, physical, and the inner, mental. His form is a deep blue colour, like that of the lapis lazuli semi-precious stone. His practice is considered to be a very powerful method for healing and increasing the restorative powers of oneself and others. Also it helps to overcome the inner sickness of attachment, hatred and ignorance, and so to meditate on the Medicine Buddha can help to decrease physical and mental illness and suffering. The prayers are chanted in Tibetan but there are texts with transliteration and full translation
Please check the calendar to ensure that there is no retreat at the same time.
