medicine buddha practice

Post by jay » Wed May 29, 2013 8:59 pm

I would like to do a medicine buddha practice and have received the lung from ChNN, but have not found any information for the practice. There are no books on it at shangshung. I would be very grateful if someone could tell me how i do this practice.

Thankyou :smile:

Here's a post that might help: ... 40#p110645

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche often gives the Lung transmission for the Medicine Buddha as well (of course we don't need the Lung transmission in order to practice a Sutra version of the Medicine Buddha Sadhana).
And like I said Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche gives the Lung transmission for Medicine Buddha, however I haven't seen any book by him on Medicine Buddha.

In receiving the said Lung transmission from Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche, I don't see why we couldn't do either of the practices in the above two books.

Jay, ask Rinpoche. There are many different Medicine Buddha practices with differing visualizations.

"We are all here to help each other go through this thing, whatever it is."
~Kurt Vonnegut

"The principal practice is Guruyoga. But we need to understand that any secondary practice combined with Guruyoga becomes a principal practice." ChNNR (Teachings on Thun and Ganapuja)
