Medicine Buddha Practice Workshop Part 2: Chanting, Mudras, and Music

February 4 @ 10:00 am - 1:00 pm

We are practicing the Medicine Buddha in order to attain states of mental and physical health or balance, not merely for our own benefit, but for the benefit of others as well…by doing these practices we actually bless the environment and all beings in that environment. ” Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche from Medicine Buddha Teachings. 

This 2 1/2 hour workshop is an introduction to the Medicine Buddha prayer text (sadhana) called “A Stream of Lapis Lazuli” by Namchu Mingyur Dorje. This practice is chanted monthly at Columbus KTC as well as at our “home” monastery, Karma Triyana Dharmachakra in upstate New York. 

Both in-person and Zoom participation will be offered.

It is not necessary to have attended Part 1 to learn from this program. May all beings benefit!

Some topics will include:

– Who is Medicine Buddha

– Learn how to visualize

– Learn his mantra and Tibetan prayer pronunciation

– Learn ritual gestures (mudras) to enrich the practice

We also will spend time chanting this beautiful practice for the benefit of all beings.

Everyone is invited to attend due to Medicine Buddha’ aspirations.
