Colleague Buddhists - I'm getting to know Medicine Buddha as I haven't met him before and he's come into my life at just the right time.

Anything you'd be willing to share about your personal relationship with him / stories/ facts / books etc. I'd be very grateful. Deep bow.

I do like the one you've forwarded, Charlene, it's more of an evening chant. Just about to download your book!

Here's a youtube link to Tibetan chanting of the Medicine Buddha mantra:

This mantra is particularly important to hear, because rather than simply saying the syllables as is so often true with other Vajrayana Tantra practices, Medicine Buddha mantra has a slow sing/song quality, a deep shift in pitch for the syllables. This difference speaks to healing through sound. 

For a tiny description of how Neuroscience describes some very elemental aspects of Medicine Buddha practice, you might enjoy my book, with preface by David Brazier, Medicine Buddha/Medicine Mind. all best!

The Omelette Sutra

Posted by Geeta Chari on May 20, 2017 at 14:00 1 Comment

I find Elizabeth David's classic book, 'French Provincial Cooking', to be replete with advice for the Pureland Sangha.

"As everybody knows, there is only one infallible recipe for the perfect omelette: your own. Reasonably enough; a successful dish is often achieved by quite different methods from those advised in cookery books or by the professional chefs, but over this question of omelette making professional and amateur cooks alike are particularly unyielding.
