The purpose of the Medicine Buddha Monlam is to gather as many spiritual practitioners together as possible for 3 days, and to use our combined motivation and act of reciting and praying Ju Mipham's "Condensed Sadhana of the Medicine Buddha: An Excellent Vase of Nectar" as a way to bring healing energy to ourselves and to beings suffering everywhere. By focusing ourselves completely on this practice, not only do we gathered increase our love, compassion and ability to benefit others through doing the practice, but also, we touch others directly through the power of this sadhana--which has healed countless beings since it was composed.
The idea behind a Monlam is, of course, that we are more capable of benefiting beings by gathering together, and that we can make a greater difference by praying together than we can on our own. In beginning the Monlam in America, Anyen Rinpoche continues a tradition begun long ago by his Lama, Tsara Dharmakirti Rinpoche, who realized this practice and used it to heal not only himself from cancer, but countless others from mental and physical illnesses. We are happy to be able to have the opportunity to share this practice and tradition with all who attend!
