The Blessing Empowerment of Medicine Buddha

Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of the healing power of all enlightened beings. His function is to liberate us from our outer and inner sicknesses. 

On this very special weekend, Gen Kelsang Mila will grant the Empowerment of Medicine Buddha and give clarification on the Medicine Buddha Sadhana practice. 

This empowerment is like a beautiful, guided meditation through which we receive powerful blessings from this Medicine Buddha.

By relying upon him and engaging in his practice we will gain knowledge to help free our self and others from the causes of inner and outer sicknesses and how to accomplish the ultimate goal of human life, full enlightenment.

The empowerment will be followed by a half day retreat on How to Become Medicine Buddha.

Tea and coffee available.

Everyone is welcome, no previous experience is required.
