Connect with the universal healing energy of the Buddha, avert sickness and disease, help those who passed away, and bless your medicines
If you are attending in-person we ask you to observe physical distancing and to stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies. It is a requirement that you wear a face-mask while onsite.
Join our annual special event that connects us with the universal healing energy of the Buddha. This extensive puja will be dedicated to addressing the karmic causes of contagious disease such as COVID-19, as well as towards creating global harmony in these uncertain times. Similar to the regular Medicine Buddha Puja, offered in English, but with quotes from sutra, more offerings, mantra recitation, and special dedication prayers.
– The puja takes several hours, so we will have regular breaks
– There will be an opportunity to make personal dedications
– Gather your medicines in your own home to be blessed during the ceremony
We make special prayers to each of the seven healing Buddhas and read their specific abilities and promises to help beings. Just hearing the names of the Medicine Buddhas, and the many ways they promised to help beings, can remove external obstacles and internal problems.
This puja helps to clear and avert obstacles due to sickness and diseases. The blessings from Medicine Buddha prevents one from falling into the lower states of rebirth. Those already in a lower state of rebirth will be quickly liberated and will take rebirth in a precious human body. This puja is recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche as particularly effective during these difficult times.
