Blessing empowerment & practical advice for a happy, healthy mind
According to Buddha, all disease and suffering, both mental and physical, are caused by our delusions – confused states of mind such as anger. Normally, these delusions feel like deeply ingrained bad habits, but through connecting to Medicine Buddha we can experience the pure nature of our mind, and heal ourselves of these inner diseases.
This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. During the commentary, Gen Jigme will explain the profound tantric practice known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha.
The empowerment will take place in the morning, followed by commentary in the afternoon. This course will function as a wonderful introduction to Buddha’s teachings on Tantra or you can come and enjoy it simply as a healing blessing.
The teacher of this course is Gen Kelsang Jigme, our Resident Teacher. Ordained in 1997 by Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso, Gen Jigme has studied, practised and taught Kadampa Buddhism under Geshe Kelsang’s guidance for many years.
