Today is Medicine Buddha Day, and Geshe Sherab has kindly agreed to offer a special blessing and loong of the Medicine Buddha mantra. The evening is open to everyone, whether Buddhist or not, to make a connection with the universal healing energy of Medicine Buddha. Geshe-la will explain how to recite the mantra, how to do a short Medicine Buddha meditation for oneself and also to benefit others – family, pets, and pacifying extreme weather and natural disasters.
