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.


Meditation is an amazing practice of how to be present, to know, to see and change at will with the application of an immense power to love and live with kindness and wisdom. This power of good remains  dormant in all human beings. Buddhist meditation shows how to unfold this from within. This technique goes back some 2600 years of ancient wisdom and enlightenment.  Come and learn to meditate with a Tibetan Lama for a day. It will take form of listening to few short discourses, sitting, walking, standing and doing things with your hand. You will something valuable that will give tools to mend many broken areas of your life and help those around you.

Private interviews will be available with Lama Choedak.
