According to the Buddhist teaching, healing essentially comes from the mind and not from the body. Disease is caused by karma produced by our self-cherishing, anger. attachment, ignorance and other delusions. Participating in the Medicine Buddha Retreat will help us work on the delusions of our mind which will help us heal our negative qualities and strengthen our positive ones, creating a healthier mind and body. Surrounded by like minded practitioners and held in our Gompa, where inspiration can be drawn from the eight life sized golden statues of the Medicine Buddhas, this structured weekend retreat, led by resident nun Venerable Drimay will ensure participants not only go through the Medicine Buddha practice, but have some uninterrupted time for meditation. Land of Medicine Buddha has been dedicated by Lama Zopa Rinpoche as a place of healing, where blessings of the Medicine Buddhas may be experienced.
