H.E. Zurmang Garwang Rinpoche is the highest lineage holder of the Zurman Kagyu tradition. He has agreed to give a Medicine Buddha Empowerment at the end of his instructions on the Seven Points of Mind Training in Kamalashila Institute in 2018.
Kamalashila Institute is a special place for this practice due to the fact that H.H. the 17th Karmapa has declared the Medicine Buddha (Tib.: Sangye Menla) as the main deity of the peace stupa. The lapis lazuli blue Medicine Buddha embodies the healing quality of one’s own mind. Through this special meditational aspect, both our bodies and our minds can attain healing, which means complete awakening. We also develop the ability to help others in their healing processes. This is why this meditation practice is especially recommendable as a daily practice for those working in the helping and healing professions.
For all those who have faith in the healing effects of the Medicine Buddha, the Medicine Buddha Empowerment given at the end of the course The Seven Points of Mind Training, Part 2 provides a sound entryway to this practice. It is also a wonderful opportunity to establish a beneficial connection to such an authentic and important Buddhist master such as Zurmang Gharwang Rinpoche.
