Medicine Buddha Online Retreat
The Medicine Buddha practice helps us to uncover and access our innate capacity to heal and it also is effective in purifying karma before and after death. It is an excellent practice for working with the current health crisis that we as human beings are experiencing as a global community. It provides an avenue for being of benefit to oneself and others at a time when circumstances seem beyond our control.
In this 10-hour teaching, Lama Döndrup will present a thorough explanation of each element of the practice text which includes visualization, mudras, and mantras. In doing this, she will also speak generally about Vajrayana practice theory and how it manifests in this particular text. The teaching ends in doing the practice together.
Lama Döndrup is Resident Lama at Sukhasiddhi Foundaiton and has practiced and studied in the Buddhist tradition for over twenty years. After five years of Theravadin Buddhist training, she immersed herself in the teachings and practices of the Shangpa and Kagyu Vajrayana lineages. In 2005, she completed the three-year retreat and was authorized as a lama. Lama Döndrup enjoys guiding students through creation and completion stage meditations; helping them to feel confident in their own understanding of ceremonies and teachings; and supporting the natural unfolding of their innate wisdom.
