Weekly Medicine Buddha Puja

With Venerable Samten

July 28, 2024

About the Medicine Buddha Puja

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.

Sunday is the day that the puja is scheduled at a regular time so that it’s easier for working people to join in consistently via Facebook, but the Medicine Buddha Puja is performed five days a week at Land of Medicine Buddha, usually by Venerable Samten and occasionally by 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 – please email [email protected]

No registration is required to join this puja. If you would like to sponsor the Puja or make a donation – please use the ‘registration’ option to do so.
