Extensive Medicine Buddha Puja‏

In conjunction with the “Ghost Festival” month, CGC will be organizing an extensive Medicine Buddha Puja on 06/09/2009 (Sunday) at 8.30 pm. It is a very opportune time for conducting the Medicine Buddha puja, and the benefits of doing the Medicine Buddha are extracted below.

Geshe Tenzin Zopa who is the resident Geshe at LDC in KL, will be presiding over the puja.

The minimum sponsor for this Extensive Medicine Buddha Puja starts from RM20, RM50, RM100 and RM250, which is 8 sets offering (water, water, flower, incense, light, perfume (water), food and music).

If you are interested to participate this extensive offering during this event, kindly write to us at fpmt.cgc@gmail before 28/08/2009 (Friday) because we need to do a lot of preparation as well.

For further queries, please contact Stephanie (012) 428 2929.

Benefits of Medicine Buddha, by Kyabje Lama Zopa Rinpoche
During this time in Holland (August 2004), Rinpoche talked about the Medicine Buddha practice. (Notes taken and edited by Kendall Magnussen).

One of the benefits of Medicine Buddha practice is that it helps to bring success. Why was Buddhism so strongly established in Tibet? This was due to Medicine Buddha practice (the long version by the Fifth Dalai Lama). It brought so much success and so he was able to preserve and spread the Dharma. All of the lineage lamas did this. When they passed away, there were incredibly inspiring stories. (Rinpoche just read about this in a text from Mongolia).

Medicine Buddha practice helps to bring prosperity, both in spiritual practice and materially. The benefits are contained in the Medicine Buddha Sutra. There are mind-blowing benefits! Therefore, Rinpoche is advising all the centers that it would be extremely good to do the Medicine Buddha Puja.

This helps in spiritual development and to receive all the needs to benefit other sentient beings, all the conditions, the material needs, for success in all the projects.

Medicine Buddha is a powerful purification. It is one of the best things to do for someone who has passed away. It is not only for sickness, it is for anything.
