Medicine Buddha Ritual
HEALING WITH THE MEDICINE BUDDHA
with Geshe Nyima Kunchap and Geshe Tenzin Yangton
The Medicine Buddha is said to be a manifestation of Tonpa Shenrab (the Supreme Teacher), founder of the Tibetan Bon Buddhist tradition. The teachings can eliminate suffering, bring healing and purify negative karma. If you would like healing for yourself or others, join Geshe Kunchap, who will be visiting from Nepal, and Geshe Yangton, Serenity Ridge resident lama, for this special Medicine Buddha ritual.
