Medicine Buddha Empowerment
February 17-18, 2023
About the Event
On the path of healing, we need help, support and inspiring energy. By receiving the empowerment of Medicine Buddha, we have an opportunity to make a connection with an enlightened Doctor, who has accomplished permanent freedom from mental and physical suffering. Medicine Buddha is the embodiment of all enlightened healing energy. Everyone is welcome to this blissful guided meditation through which we make a special, heart-felt connection with Medicine Buddha and receive his profound healing blessings.
Saturday afternoon will include a commentary on the Medicine Buddha practices and your special connection with him. In the Sunday afternoon retreat, we will be guided through the chanted prayer and meditation practices of Medicine Buddha.
Gen Tabkay of KMC Phoenix will lead the introduction and guide the meditation. Gen Lingpur will grant the empowerment and give commentary to the practice.
Gen Lingpur is the Resident Teacher of Kadampa Meditation Center Arizona in Tucson. She's been a student and disciple of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche for over 25 years.
Gen Kelsang Tabkay is a Kadampa Buddhist monk and the Resident Teacher at Kadampa Meditation Center Phoenix. He has been a student of Venerable Geshe Kelsang Gyatso Rinpoche since 2007.
