Full-Moon Day Medicine Buddha Practice
with TRTCC Teacher Ven. Lama Kalsang
Monday, 3/9/2020 at 7:00 p.m.
Monday, March 9, is a full-moon day. As a regular monthly practice we will have a Medicine Buddha Practice at 7 p.m. guided by our resident teacher Ven. Lama Kalsang.
For all who have a sincere intention to be connected with the healing energy of Medicine Buddha, here are a few things to keep in mind: We start each practice with sitting down quietly and letting go of whatever distractions that may come into our mind, then taking refuge in the three jewels– Buddha (the enlightened teacher), Dharma (the enlightening teaching), and Sangha (the community of practitioners), and affirming our Bodhicitta intention. Bodhicitta is the pure aspiration to achieve the awakened state through skillful and compassionate actions to help all beings be liberated from their pain and cycles of suffering. For the Medicine Buddha practice, the aspiration is to purify the physical and mental illnesses of all beings, who are, in whatever way it may have presented, connected with our lives. Ven. Lama Kalsang will be guiding us on how to practice this, with a final dedication to return all merits back to all beings.
ALL ARE WELCOME
