Sunday afternoons

Medicine Buddha is the manifestation of the healing energy of all enlightened beings. Prayers to Medicine Buddha are especially powerful because of the extensive prayers they took to benefit sentient beings. They strongly prayed for the temporal and ultimate happiness of all sentient beings; they vowed that their prayers would be actualized during these times.

  • When Venerable Samten leads the puja, it is in Tibetan. You can follow along in the prayer book, FPMT Essential Buddhist Prayers, Volume 2, starting on page 102.
  • When Venerables Drimay or Yangchen are leading the puja, it’s in English and they will guide you through the prayer book.

Sunday is the day that the puja is scheduled at a regular time so that the public can attend, but the Medicine Buddha Puja is performed daily at Land of Medicine Buddha by Venerable Samten and other staff members.

If you would like to request a prayer – so that you or a loved one receives dedications of the merit at the end of the puja – go to:
