Healing the World
Empowerment of Medicine Buddha & Teachings on
How to Solve Our Human Problems
In 2006 Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche opened and blessed the second Kadampa Temple for World Peace in Glen Spey, NY. At that time, he gave Medicine Buddha empowerment and the oral transmission of How to Solve our Human Problems. For more information
“Our job is to pray for world peace – anytime, anywhere. We know there are so many dangers and problems arising right now, war and terrible things. We try to repair, to pacify, to cause all dangers and obstacles to cease through our prayers. With compassion, we pray every day for world peace, that the people of this world will experience peaceful and happy minds and meaningful lives. Through our pure intention, the power of our prayers and particularly through receiving blessings from enlightened beings, results will come, definitely. Our job is to pray.” ~ Geshe Kelsang Gyatso 2006
In the 2019 US Festival, Gen-la Jampa will grant the blessing empowerment of Medicine Buddha and give commentary to the practice and teachings on How to Solve Our Human Problems.
Medicine Buddha Empowerment
Medicine Buddha is a Buddha Doctor whose function is to release us from physical and mental disease. By relying upon Medicine Buddha, we will receive a special power upon our body and mind through which we can heal our own outer and inner sickness and also help others through engaging in healing actions. This practice is especially powerful at this time for pacifying problems and dangers, and for bringing peace to our world.
Commentary to How to Solve Our Human Problems
In this busy and troubled world, our experiences of happiness are fleeting and peace of mind eludes us. Our mental diseases, such as uncontrolled desire and anger, create endless problems and prevent us from fulfilling our deepest wishes. Buddha’s teachings are the supreme medicine through which we can solve our human problems and finally heal our mental continuum.
