Medicine Buddha Healing Course
About Medicine Buddha Healing
Tibetans use an ancient form of medicine called “The Knowledge of Healing” whose origins are believed to be based on the teachings of the historical Buddha. In the Tibetan medical tradition, the concept of well-being takes into account the full dynamics of body, speech and mind to achieve effective and comprehensive healing. It utilises the power of sacred mantras and meditative stabilisation.
In Tibetan Buddhist healing, the notion of the law of karma implies infinite interlinked causes for any single event. The three afflictive emotions known as the “three poisons,” are considered to be the root of all illness. The first poison is desire or passion, which implies grasping at objects or pleasant experiences. The second poison is hatred or aversion, consists of pushing away unpleasant experiences or objects. Finally, ignorance or confusion which involves misunderstanding the nature of existence of an object or a particular experience, is the third poison of the mind.
In this course, purification of negative karma through Vajrasattva practice and cultivating great compassion through Chenrezig practice form a solid foundation for learning to condition one’s body-speech-mind to be just like that of the Healer Medicine Buddha.
