This will be held at our Main Temple in Westminster, Colorado. We will begin Friday evening with a required purification and cleansing ceremony. In our Sangha,there are those who are struggling with illness right now and are in need of healing. We also see in our world many who are ill. It is with the intention of relieving such suffering that we are holding this retreat. We invite our entire Sangha and anyone worldwide to join us.
Lhoppön Rinpoche received Medicine Buddha blessings as a young child growing up in the monastery. Lama Chenchok, a great yogi known as He-Who-Never-Gets-Mad, bestowed this purification with great benefits upon Rinpoche and others. Lhoppön Rinpoche will now pass on this important healing blessing practice in a weekend retreat at Mipham Shedra.
For anyone suffering from physical or mental distress, this is a powerful healing event. Medicine Buddha also purifies the subtle-energy body. Medicine Buddha practice is a dynamic and life altering gift for our current age of increasing stress, anxiety, extremely busy schedules and polluted environment. Ultimately, Medicine Buddha practice removes obstacles that make it difficult to cultivate calm abiding, love and compassion and our intention to serve all sentient beings. In this way we could say the real purpose of Medicine Buddha practice is for enlightenment. On the everyday level, Medicine Buddha practices clears out environmental toxins, dark energies, and immune suppressing body, spirit and mind issues.
DIETARY RESTRICTIONS DURING RETREAT: No meat, eggs, garlic, onions, ginger or alcohol
