Medicine Buddha Empowerment

Announcements

Medicine Buddha

Saturday, June 26, 2021
11:00 AM – 1:00 PM MDT
Via Zoom Livestream

Dear members and friends of Gaden Samten Ling;  

We are very happy to announce that Spiritual Director Kushok Lobsang Dhamchöe will be offering an online Medicine Buddha Empowerment (Initiation) on Saturday, June 26, from 11:00 PM MST – 1:00 PM MST, via Zoom livestream.

The Medicine Buddha, attainer of bliss, strongly prayed for the temporal and ultimate happiness all sentient beings. He vowed that his prayers would be actualized during these degenerate times. We believe that if you pray to Medicine Buddha you will quickly accomplish all that you wish and receive blessings and protection from the COVID-19 pandemic which continues to cause misery and disruption to our lives. 

An empowerment (initiation) is a ceremony where the initiation master, based on his own realization gained in retreat, transmits the connection to the deity and gives us permission to engage in regular meditation practice on this deity. It creates a bridge between us, the teacher and the deity, introducing us to the true nature Medicine Buddha and allowing us to receive the full blessings of engaging in this meditation practice.

Target Audience 
Anyone interested in developing or strengthening their connection to Medicine Buddha, and to receive blessings and protection from the Guru.

In effort to protect the privacy of participants and the security and integrity of our online courses and retreats, we ask that you kindly refrain from sharing any links.

Also, in an effort to maintain the atmosphere of the shrine room and to reduce distraction from the teachings, Kushok requests that the chat option in Zoom be limited to directing questions to the host. Participants will have opportunities to ask Kushok questions at the end of each class. Kushok also requests that attendees please identify themselves by providing their name when they register and turning on their video where available. This allows him to see who is attending and to feel connected to his audience.
