Medicine for the Mind

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, heal ourselves of these inner diseases, and be able to help others do the same. This empowerment is a beautiful guided meditation, during which we will receive the blessings of Medicine Buddha, the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. We will also learn to engage in the profound tantric practice known as self-generation, through which we awaken our own potential to become an enlightened healing Buddha.
