What will I learn at the Fall Festival?
At the 2020 Fall Festival Gen-la Kelsang Dekyong will grant the blessing empowerment of Medicine Buddha and then teach:
- How to develop the power to heal ourself and others through the supreme medicine of faith and wisdom.
- Heart advice into the practice of Medicine Buddha sadhana (a method for accomplishing the attainments of Medicine Buddha) & Medicine Buddha Prayer (a method for benefitting others).
- A commentary to both Medicine Buddha Sadhana and Medicine Buddha Prayer and the relationship between them from oral instructions from the heart of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche.
O Blessed One Medicine Buddha, who love all living beings,
Merely through hearing your holy name,
The sickness of the three poisons will cease.
We prostrate to you, O King of Lapis Jewel Land.
