Medicine Buddha Puja (IN PERSON)
Connect with the universal healing energy of the Buddha, avert sickness and disease, help those who passed away, and bless your medicines
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.
We have a COVID-safe plan and capacity limits apply. We ask you to observe physical distancing, wear a face-mask if you wish, and stay home if feeling even slightly unwell, with any cold or flu like symptoms, as well as allergies.
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 personal dedications for friends and family, the sick and vulnerable, healing the planet and the halt of the coronavirus. You can also dedicate for success in your studies and all your Dharma aspirations.
Remember to BYO medicines to be blessed during the ceremony. You are welcome to make food offerings, which will be distributed to the needy at a later date. Please make sure they are commercially packaged.
