By relying upon Medicine Buddha sincerely, living beings in these impure times can be cured of heavy physical and mental disease, and find release from the internal pain of the three poisons: attachment, anger, and ignorance. They can also receive protection from many other dangers and obstacles. Moreover, by practicing the sadhana (prayers) of Medicine Buddha sincerely, we receive a special power of body, speech, and mind, which we can then use to help others through healing actions.
It will consist of four 1 hour sessions using the sadhana (prayer) Medicine Buddha Sadhana. Session times will be: 12-1pm, 2-3pm, 4-5pm, and 7-8pm.
No experience is necessary, and all are welcome. Cost is $5/session or $15 for the whole retreat. FREE for anyone who attended the Calif. Dharma Celebration earlier this month. www.meditationinsantabarbara.org
