The Blessing Empowerment of Medicine Buddha
With Kadam Matthew
In our modern society, we suffer from many physical and mental diseases as well as increasing dis-ease within even minds considered to be healthy. Anxiety, loneliness, addictive behavior, anger, self-loathing and depression are rising to epidemic proportions within our world.
According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our confused way of relating to ourselves and the world around us. Normally, these delusions feel deeply ingrained. But through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.
This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. During the commentary, Kadam Matthew will explain the profound tantric practice, known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha. The empowerment will take place Saturday morning, followed by commentary and explanation of the practice in the afternoon. There will then be guided Medicine Buddha meditation practices along with further commentary on Sunday morning.
