Dear Dharma friends,
Tuesday, 7/16 7 PM Green Tara practice
Saturday 7/20 and Sunday 7/21 Albany KTC is pleased to offer a special teaching on:
Medicine Buddha: Sutra, Empowerment and Practice
Taught by Khenpo Ugyen Tenzin; Translator, Khenpo Sangye Trinley
Saturday 7/20 Teaching:
- 10 AM – 12
- 2:30 PM – 4:30
- 10 AM – 12 Empowerment
- 2:30PM – 4:30 Practice
The Medicine Buddha Sutra was taught by the Buddha in Vaisala, India, to a large gathering of monks, nuns and Bodhsattvas. The practice of Medicine Buddha or Sangye Menla was brought to Tibet by Shantarakshita (8th Century CE) and spread widely by Atisha (11th Century CE). This Mahayana practice is about healing oneself and others of sickness, which ultimately arises from our kleshas or negative mental patterns.
Suggested Donation $20 per session ($15 for members) but no one will be turned away for lack of funds.
I hope you can join us for this special teaching and practice. Wishing you peace, happiness and excellent health and well being.
Yours in the Dharma,
Mary Ann Duncan
