Medicine Buddha Retreat Weekend for His Holiness’ quick recovery with Ven Tony Beaumont

29 June @ 9:00 am - 30 June @ 4:00 pm AEST


about the event

We would like to invite friends of Chenrezig Institute and devoted students of His Holiness Dalai Lama to join us for the Medicine Buddha retreat weekend on Jun 29/30th to pray together for the successful treatment of His Holiness’ upcoming procedure.

The Medicine Buddha is a healing Buddha from the Tibetan Buddhist tradition. Many cultures have healing deities or rituals, and the Medicine Buddha is a profound practice for healing physical, mental, and emotional ailments. It is even more powerful when a group practices together, focusing on the loved one or person who needs healing.

“I would like for FPMT to offer service to His Holiness the Dalai Lama as much as possible and to be able to fulfill His Holiness’ wishes,” Lama Zopa Rinpoche stressed continuously. “This is the highest priority for the organization.”

Lama Zopa Rinpoche has explained, “The Medicine Buddha encompasses all the buddhas. This means that when we practice the seven-limb prayer and make offerings with the seven limbs, we receive the same merit as we would if we had made offerings to all the buddhas. Similarly, when we recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, we collect unbelievable merit just as when we offer the seven-limb practice to Medicine Buddha.”

Students of His Holiness around the world are joining together to offer Medicine Buddha mantras at this time.

Please join us for this beautiful healing practice for His Holiness Dalai Lama to dedicate all positive energy from our hearts to His quick and smooth recovery.

May His Holiness please live a very long and healthy life! 

About our Retreat Leader

Ven Tony first made contact with the Buddha-dharma in Nepal and India in 1976. Following this, he trained and worked for four years as a psychiatric nurse, and then in the 1980s was based at Chenrezig Institute during which time he served at different times as the cook, office worker, and gardener.

Following ordination as a monk in1991, he lived for seventeen years at Nalanda Monastery in France and served as director at Thubten Shedrup Ling monastery in Bendigo. He has led retreats and courses at various FPMT centres throughout the world, as well as teaching in prisons and schools. Ven Tony has returned to live at Chenrezig Institute  and we rejoice that he will lead this special retreat.
