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!

Study Group.

Posted by Adam Dunsby on July 18, 2017 at 22:41 1 Comment

We just had a study group meeting at Amida Mandala Temple. Only three of us but a very rich hour. Predictably we came round to the issue of ‘is one Nembutsu enough?’ My understanding: In a sense it is, because when we call Amida we become one with his vow and the Pure Land and thus we are saved. In another sense we have to keep calling him so that he can keep saving us. As if we’re all lost in a thick fog and Amida is a few steps ahead of us illuminating the way, we have to keep him in sight…
