About the Course
Medicine Buddha is a manifestation of enlightened beings’ power to heal the mind and body of living beings. All disease and suffering has its origin in the mind either in gross delusions such as anger and their karmic effects or in mistaken appearances that cause us to relate to things in ways they don’t exist and prevent us from realizing mental freedom and joy.
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 Gen Sanden 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. There will then be two guided Medicine Buddha meditations along with further commentary on Sunday morning.
