Medicine Buddha Puja
Thursday 17 February @ 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Connect with the universal healing energy of the Buddha, avert sickness and disease, help those who passed away, and bless your medicines.
This puja helps to clear and avert obstacles due to sickness and diseases. In the ceremony we recite the special prayers to each of the seven healing Buddhas with their specific abilities and promises to help beings. Just hearing their names, and the many ways they promised to help beings, can remove external obstacles and resolve internal problems. This popular puja is recommended by Lama Zopa Rinpoche as particularly effective during these difficult times. It is sung entirely in English, and enjoyed Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
There will be an opportunity to make personal dedications for friends and family, the sick and vulnerable, healing the planet and the halt of the coronavirus. 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. You can also dedicate for success in your studies and all your Dharma aspirations.
