Ringu Tulku Rinpoche very kindly accepted our request to teach on the practice of Medicine Buddha (Skt: Bhaiṣajyaguru भैषज्यगुरु, Tib: Sangye Menla སངས་རྒྱས་སྨན་བླ). Rinpoche will teach from Karma Chagmey’s ‘Sādhana of Bhaiṣajya Guru‘ text.
The live teaching is now complete and the video recordings (except the empowerment and reading transmission) will be added here. Audio recordings and translations can be found at the bottom of the page.
The teaching sessions took place on:
Monday, 11th May 2020 – 14:30 pm GMT/UTC
Tuesday, 12th May 2020 – 14:30 pm GMT/UTC
Wednesday, 13th May 2020 – 14:30 pm GMT/UTC
Here is a link to the sadhana text on lotsawahouse.org.
This is the mantra of Medicine Buddha:
teyata om bhekanze bhekanze maha bhekanze radza samudgaté soha
During the teaching Rinpoche suggested that we all collect Medicine Buddha mantras as a group over the following ten days.
Mantras were submitted in total by 186 individuals or groups.
The submission form closed at 5pm UTC on 23 May.
(Includes five additional submissions by email that were completed in the ten days but were unable to be submitted before the form closed).
These teachings are dedicated for all who are sick and dying of corona virus, and for all who are tirelessly working in order to help them.
