According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, mental and physical, are caused by our negative minds. Normally our negative minds can 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. Through healing ourself of mental and physical suffering, we will then be able to heal others.
The empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation, during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. In the afternoon Gen Pagpa will explain a daily practice we can engage in, in order to awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha.
It is possible to attend only the empowerment & lunch for R280 or just the empowerment for R200.
