Medicine Buddha instructions and practice with Lama Zangmo
When10 Jun 2018
10:00am to 4:00pm
WhoTeacher: Lama Gelongma Zangmo
The practice of Medicine Buddha, or Sangye Menla, is a profound Vajrayana method to engender health and well-being of oneself and others.
The Medicine Buddha Sadhana is an effective way to balance the physical, mental and spiritual health of ourselves and others. It can be of great help to all practitioners and particularly those in the medical profession.The main motivation of the Medicine Buddha was to remove the sufferings of beings in general, but especially the physical and mental suffering caused through imbalance of the elements which manifests as physical and mental illness.
Over this Sunday Lama Zangmo will give instructions on the sadhana text, the visualisations, meditations and benefits of this practice, and at 7pm there will be the monthly Medicine Buddha Puja led by the Samye Dzong Sangha.
Ideally one should have received the Medicine Buddha empowerment, however, you can still attend the instructions without the empowerment as long as you have taken Refuge. Please bring the text (available from the shop) pencil, pen and paper.
Traditionally the Buddhist teachings are given freely because they are considered priceless and those receiving the teachings practice generosity, or Dana, by making monetary offerings for the centre. This generosity is not payment for goods or services rendered; it is an offering given, freely from the heart, in appreciation for receiving the precious instructions that can help better one’s life and the lives of others.
Making a donation directly helps to provide all the necessary conditions for the study and practice of meditation and Buddhism, bringing teachers to teach and maintaining a spiritual community as well as contributing to the considerable expenses that are involved in running a centre. We are grateful for your support and hope to continue to provide a space of peace and calm dedicated to promoting world peace and good health of body and mind.
