Medicine Buddha Puja for Lama Zopa Rinpoche's swift return

10:30 am Sunday, May 14, 2023



Kadampa Center will hold a Medicine Buddha Puja for Lama Zopa Rinpche's swift return, on Sunday, May 14, at 10:30 am.

The puja will include extensive offerings - 100 sets - across the altar. It will be chanted in both English and Tibetan. Both Geshe Gelek and Geshe Sangpo will attend.

We will serve a light lunch after the puja.

All are welcome to come and join in!


This puja is possible because of the generous outpouring of support to sponsor a puja at Kopan for Rinpoche's swift return. Our community's dedication to Rinpoche resulted in raising far more than was needed for the puja at Kopan, so at Geshe Gelek's advice, we will also offer this puja in our gompa.

Please come also on Saturday, May 13 at 2 pm to help set up the gompa and all the offerings, with guidance from Geshe Sangpo.


Medicine Buddha Puja is a beautiful prayer service that includes lyrical praises to the seven Medicine Buddhas, requests for their help and aspirations for our own spiritual attainments. It is beneficial for mental and physical healing and world peace, and is especially beneficial for those who are experiencing physical or mental illness or those who have recently passed away.

Imagine knowing not just one, but seven doctors we can call upon to heal all physical and mental illness! We have those doctors – the Medicine Buddhas – and in this prayer service we celebrate their compassion and call upon them for help.  

The puja will be offered on YouTube and Zoom. We will use the usual Sunday Dharma Connections Zoom registration; if you already have a link, no need to register again!  Register on Zoom.
