Health and Healing Through Seven Medicine Buddhas

Ill health generated by one’s unwholesome attitude cannot be cured by conventional medicine alone. One has to understand how specific mind states can contribute to ill health, and to learn to remedy them. By becoming conscious of the effects of negative attitudes, conduct and speech on one’s health informs, reforms and empowers the person to restrain them.

The empowerment of Healing Medicine Buddha, transmission of the healing mantra and meditation passed down through an unbroken lineage from a qualified Lama is of paramount importance.

This will include a training session on how to do the Healing Buddha meditation. You will also learn how to use it to assist friends and relatives who may be ill or dying. This healing meditation technique will compliment any form of medical treatment. This practice can reduce the side effects and increase the effectiveness of any medication.

It is especially recommended for health professionals, people with medical conditions and those who are interested in learning self-healing.

Four Seals of Buddhist Wisdom

Buddhism teaches the reality of all things ‘as they appear’ and ‘as they are’ on the basis of four principals known as ‘Four Seals’ which if accepted makes oneself as a signatory to live a compassionate, selfless and forgiving way of life.

Many people in the West have embraced Buddhism as a non-violent and peaceful approach to life without needing to see it as a religion.  One is encouraged to investigate and reject it if it does not suit one’s life.

Most people have difficulty in dealing with ‘the way life presents itself’ without accepting it with understanding, but Rinpoche says the difficulties in life are the catalyst and opportunities to put an unbreakable seal of right understanding and growth.

Paluma Retreat

Calm Abiding Meditation & Teachings on Goddess Parnashavari

 

Calm Abiding Meditation is the most fundamental of all Buddhist meditation practices. Using the tool of mindfulness one learns to bring a sense of stability and clarity to the mind. An increase in emotional stability and decrease in mental confusion will help negotiate more helpful responses when confronted with life problems. Meditation is ultimately about experiencing the opening up of our heart and mind to compassion and to wisdom. In this years retreat lama Choedak Rinpoche will also be giving teaching on Healing Goddess Parnashavari.

Meditation should be learnt properly from a good teacher and practice far away from noise and distraction until one has developed a solid discipline to do it in everyday life.

The amazing benefits of meditation can help to understand how to live sanely and wisely without being adversely affected by the fast pace of the modern world. Being able to stay calm, focused and learn to use simple but profound techniques of meditation can change one’s life.

In this retreat, Lama Choedak Rinpoche will bestow the sacred transmission of the Healing Goddess Parnashavari and Lead its meditation and give teachings as part of the weekend retreat.

Healing Medicine Buddha Empowerment

Sickness is a common suffering of all living beings. However, according to Tibetan medicine, most illnesses are psychosomatic. Ill health that is generated by one’s unwholesome attitude cannot be cured by conventional medicine alone. This will help you understand how certain mind states can contribute to ill health, and to learn how to apply the appropriate antidotes. Discover the connection between thoughts, behaviour and speech, and the positive and negative effects they have on your health.

Lama Choedak Rinpoche will give the empowerment of the Healing Medicine Buddha and impart the transmission of the healing mantra passed down through an unbroken lineage since the time of the Buddha.

This will provide a complete training in practical as well as theoretical session on how to do the Healing Buddha’s meditation. You will also learn how to use it to assist friends and relatives who may be ill or dying. This profound meditation technique will compliment any form of medical treatment. This practice can reduce the side effects and increase the effectiveness of any medication. It is especially recommended for health professionals and those who are interested in learning self-healing.
