Medicine Buddha Retreat & Empowerment

Join us for this unique retreat opportunity...

The Medicine Buddha encompasses all the Buddhas, it’s a very powerful practice for healing, success and removal of obstacles in our spiritual and daily life.

This practice is especially beneficial if you are doing healing work, if you have a physical condition or if someone you know or love is suffering, this practice can be done for them, on their behalf.

“To recite the Medicine Buddha mantra brings inconceivable merit. Manjushri, the Buddha of Wisdom, requested the eight tathagatas (Guru Shakyamuni Buddha and the seven Medicine Buddhas) to reveal a special mantra that would make prayers  to quickly come to pass, especially for those sentient beings born in these times degenerations and overwhelmed by various diseases and sufferings. All the eight tathagatas, in one voice, taught the Medicine Buddha mantra”. ~ by Lama Zopa Rinpoche.

Therefore, if you do this practice and recite this mantra, the Buddhas and bodhisattvas will always pay attention to you, guide you and protect you. Your negativities will be pacified and you will have great inner peace and success.
