We all need a powerful source of healing in our life, and our society as a whole is deeply in need of healing as well.
To this end, at this year's annual California Dharma Celebration, Gen Kelsang Rigpa will grant the empowerment of Medicine Buddha and give teachings on profound meditation and prayer practices that have the power to heal ourselves and others. Through receiving the special inspiration of Medicine Buddha, we can awaken our own limitless potential to become a dynamic, creative force for healing, peace and positivity in our world, bringing enormous benefit to many people, including our family, friends, and finally to all living beings. Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who can help us become free from heavy physical and mental sickness and other dangers. He has the power to purify our mind of the three poisons–anger, uncontrolled desire, and confusion–the source of all sickness, danger and unhappiness. He is a Buddha Doctor, a qualified healer for the modern world.

Who is Medicine Buddha?
What is an Empowerment?
An empowerment is a blissful guided meditation through which we connect to a Buddha’s enlightened mind, in this case Medicine Buddha's enlightened mind. By receiving these inspiring blessings, our own potential for healing increases and we draw closer to the special blessings and care of Medicine Buddha. Doing this, we can definitely realize the greatest meaning of this precious human life.
