The Medicine Buddha vowed to heal the sentient beings’ physical, mental, and spiritual diseases. We are often caught by ignorance and delusion which cause us to perform bad karma. Thus, be afflicted with immeasurable sufferings. Sufferings can be classified into three categories:
- Sufferings of the realm of desires
- Sufferings of the realm of form
- Sufferings of the realm of formlessness
The Medicine Buddha blessed the sentient beings with various medicines, from the physical healing to highest attainment of Buddhahood. This retreat will be conducted in a series of lectures and contemplative meditation.
