Medicine Buddha Puja, Online, Monday, 03. August 2020
About this Event
Connect us with the universal healing energy of the Buddha to heal the karmic causes of illness and suffering. This popular puja is sung entirely in English, and enjoyed Buddhists and non-Buddhists alike.
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.
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.
There will be an opportunity to make a personal dedication for the well-being of friends and family, for quick help for the sick and vulnerable, for healing the planet and the halt of the coronavirus. We can also dedicate for our holy gurus, the success of your studies, a project dear to your heart, and for all your Dharma aspirations.
Set your medicines up with an offering in your own home. Remember to have your bell and dorje ready (if you have them). The medicines will be blessed during the ceremony.
