Dear friends,

A friend of mine has been ill. He works within Kechara and is a very kind person. He has many friends who wishes to do practices, pujas, retreats and dedications to send him good energy in order to heal. So why not direct those good intentions into a Medicine Buddha practice.

I visited Turkey Swamp last week here in New Jersey and decided to give a talk on Medicine Buddha practice. I use to visit Turkey Swamp as a child and do meditations here. It use to take me around 2.5-3 hours by bicycle to pedal to Turkey Swamp.

This practice is dedicated for my friend, but anyone can do this practice for themselves. It is the same procedure. They can also do this sacred practice in dedication for others. It’s wonderful for animals as well.  

I have recorded a clear video explaining this practice and how to go about it. Kindly watch the video to learn about this sacred Medicine Buddha practice. I wish you all good luck and long life. Health too. May your obstacles be cleared.

Tsem Rinpoche

Turkey Swamp

It was really cold that day when we went.

 The waters at Turkey Swamp very blue and we saw a lot of fishes.

 We walked around this area as I have not been back since 30 years. So recording this teaching here has special significance for myself.

 There are always ducks swimming around Turkey Swamp even when I was a kid I’d see them here.

Turkey Swamp lake is placid and calm which is ideal for meditation. Very ideal.

    Thank you sir Tsem Rinpoche for your teaching on Medicine Buddha.I really appreaciate that from bottom of my heart.

  2. Sadi on Feb 20, 2015 at 4:17 am

    I have seen this teaching in the past. Noteworthy is Rinpoche’s compassion and care for his student Paul. There was another blog post on him personally attending to Paul as Paul laid on his bed. I am glad Paul has overcome his sickness due to his faith in his Rinpoche. Your compassion is truly immense Rinpoche. I wish you and your students all the best forever and ever Rinpoche.

    Dear Guru Rinpoche,
    You are our great Rinpoche
    l am so grateful to you for your ability to help peoples find their true connection with Dharma spirit.
    Wishing you good health.
    Cheer.

    Dear Rinpoche

    Thank you for this powerful & simple prayer of Medicine Buddha. As Rinpoche explained, this prayer is very effective to blessed the environment and all beings :-

    For personal well being :-
    1) good for our health
    2) purifying our karma and preventing karma from manifesting diseases, illness
    3) lessening our karma that will delay illness or cure the disease
    4) protection for good health

    For the environment
    1) calm & eliminate natural disaster places
    2) for animals to have good human rebirth to practice Dharma

    Overall it is developed specifically to clear obstacles so that we can learn & practice the Dharma and to be enlightened. Its is good for calming and healing the mind and environment.

    I am very thankful to Eric KK Siow of KP, Sunway who introduced me Su Ming who have guided Gary to carry-out Setrap Puja (a prayer to Dharma Protector) and Menlha Puja (a prayer to Medicine Buddha) during a serious and unknown health condition. Its been 4 years and his condition is now under controlled.

    I sincerely thank Rinpoche for providing each and everyone the necessary purification method to overcome our daily problems, our obstacles, our illness and also our suffering during the illness or death of our loved ones. With Rinpoche’s blessing, Paul Yap will always received the blessings, prayers & protection of medicine Buddha to recover swiftly and have good health.

    Once again, thank you Rinpoche for your profound teachings at this beautiful enchanting lake of Turkey Swamp. May this powerful Medicine Buddha prayer reached all beings that they receive the Dharma which is the medicine to alleviate our suffering. May the development of Medicine Buddha at Kechara Forest Retreat manifest quickly for the sake of all beings.

    Wish Rinpoche the best of health and continue to teach and guide all beings to the path of Enlightenment.

    With folded hands
    Rena

    Thank you Rinpoche for your kind compassion to give us a talk on Medicine Buddha, on how to do one, what are the benefits and Rinpoche’s Generous dedication and wish for Paul Yap’s recovery. I really believe in Rinpoche sincere and strong belief that Medicine Buddha Practice and mantra truly works and is super beneficial to all living beings around us as well as the person that is dedicated to. From Rinpoche’s story, it must’ve been really funny to see a line of ducks following Rinpoche after finishing the prayer haha. I am a practicing vegetarian and at times I may be offered a situation to eat meat where it may be offensive to the person I am receiving it from. Learning this mantra now would help me go through it, if the situation cannot be avoided. Thank you for sharing this teaching Rinpoche.

    谢谢仁波切给我们分享药师佛法会的仪轨和好处。
    药师佛心咒有心灵治疗功效, 我们身体健康不好,常常念诵此咒,可以健康长寿。药师佛心咒对治众生的种种病苦,并能消除一切灾业。

  7. Albert Ratchaga on Nov 30, 2013 at 11:12 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for the teaching of Medicine Buddha Sadhana.

    I remember Rinpoche said before, Rinpoche does not like to teach, but because of Rinpoche promised to his guru, he will teach. Even Rinpoche is far away in USA, Rinpoche still record and teach. Rinpoche always wanted to benefit every single beings that come into his life.

    With this teaching being made available online, many people will definitely be beneficial from it. Now is our turn to do it and dedicate to Paul’s recovery so that he can continue to serve the Dharma which this is also his great wish.

  8. Wylfred Ng on Nov 28, 2013 at 8:49 pm

    Thanks Rinpoche for the sharing.

    Before this i thought Medicine Buddha practice can only heal us from illness or disease. After watching the video, i only know that there are so many benefits practicing Medicine Buddha.

    I personally have not attend any weekly Medicine Buddha Puja at Kechara House, but because of volunteering in Kechara Puja House, i had chance to join the puja for many times.

    Recently, i have chance to invite back a Medicine Buddha statue which is beyond my expectation.

    I am very happy to have the statue and wish that Medicine Buddha will benefit more sentient beings.

    Thanks again.

    药师佛法门真的很强,很多人接触药师佛法门后都会大力推荐和利益身边的朋友。药师佛不只是针对病疗,对心灵的治疗都非常显着。普遍上都被大家接受,这也是一个让大家接触佛法的好办法。

  10. Wan Wai Meng on Nov 12, 2013 at 3:37 am

    Medicine Buddha mantra helps both the living and those who have passed away. Purifies a lot of heavy karma it is also able to benefit beings who have died for hundeeds of years.Reciting the mantra and blowing on the bones helps the being.

  11. David Lai on Nov 12, 2013 at 2:08 am

    Wow Rinpoche,

    This is such a wonderful and meaningful place to be giving this wonderful teaching. I do remember a story that Rinpoche told once that when Rinpoche prayed to the Medicine Buddha statue, you could stop the rain. I thought that was incredible. I think Medicine Buddha mantra and practice is powerful way to bless the sick, dying and wandering animals. I guess its a great mantra to recite and bless meat but I hardly do that nowadays as i hardly come across meat these days.

    I think Medicine Buddha puja is one of the most popular pujas as there are always people who are sick or dying. That is crucial because this puja is real effective and powerful. And the wonderful thing is that this puja is simple and can be done by just about anybody. However, I would like to take time to learn up the actual puja in Tibetan. Lovely… Thank you Rinpoche for sharing an explanation on its meaning.

  12. So Kin Hoe (KH Ipoh) on Nov 9, 2013 at 6:54 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank you for showing your kindness towards Paul’s illness as we really want him to recover as soon as possible. Thank you for explaining the benefits of Medicine Buddha practice with intensive decription and teachings of Medicine Buddha practice. The information from here is very useful for us to practise as layman. Thank you Rinpoche again for giving us the clear instruction to practise Dharma and grab the opportunities to do more Dharma while we are in perfect human form in this life times.

    With folded hands,

  13. Wendy Loh on Nov 9, 2013 at 12:12 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you so very much for the teaching on Medicine Buddha at beautiful Turkey Swamp, New Jersey. Such a peaceful and serene place to be.

    I will recite the Medicine Buddha mantra more often to help pacify a hostile environment and also to calm my mind so that I am not distracted from my Guru and the Dharma path.

    With folded hands,
    Wendy

  14. Pastor Han Nee on Nov 8, 2013 at 2:12 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche, for this teaching on the Medicine Buddha sadhana and its many benefits.

    I believe very strongly in the power of the Medicine Buddha sadhana and mantra. Recently, Zoey, one of my cats, fell and hurt her head. Immediately after that fall, she behaved as though she was suffering from some brain damage. She became still and altogether unlike her previous very energetic lively self and she wasn’t eating. The vet said her eyes didn’t show any response to a certain test he had conducted. He told us to be prepared for the worst(that she could become a ‘vegetable’ and would have to be fed using a drip then), and asked us to leave her with him for a few days.

    During those few days, I prayed to Medicine Buddha, and had a Medicine Buddha puja done for her by the KH Puja House. When my husband and I went to check on her a couple of days later,the doctor reported that she was back to normal and was behaving in a normal way. How powerful the Medicine Buddha sadhana and mantra are in purifying the karma of my Joey !

  15. Leonard Ooi(Penang) on Nov 8, 2013 at 8:50 am

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing the Medicine Buddha practice. A month ago, my nephew was very sick going through the last stage of cancer. I started to chant Medicine Buddha mantra and OM MANI PADME OM everyday for two weeks before he passed away. I am glad I could do this little for my nephew.

    May Medicine Buddha practice bless everyone.

    Thank you again Rinpcoche.

    Your sincerely,

    Leonard Ooi(Penang) with folded hands

    This place was incredibly idyllic and magical. The autumn colours were just mesmerizing and the waters reflecting the dusk was just divine. It is no wonder Rinpoche has such fond memories of this place.

  17. KYC on Nov 7, 2013 at 9:03 pm

    We are very fortunate to receive the Medicine Buddha teachings from Rinpoche. It is useful for healing illness and for purification of negative karma. I will study the sadhana carefully and apply it for myself as well as to help others. Thank you, Rinpoche.

  18. Julia Tan on Nov 7, 2013 at 5:43 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Very happy to see Rinpoche in the video. Thank you Rinpoche for the sacred Medicine Buddha Teachings with beautiful scene from Turkey Swamp. To be born as a human is rare. To have a healthy body is even more rare. By having a heathy body we can do lots of Dharma work. But our body is so fragile and easily get sick and damage especially living in this hectic and stressful city. We need Medicine Buddha Practice badly, more so a place that can give us not only healthy living but calm and relax our mind. Through Rinpoche’s kindness, a place like Kechara Forest Retreat is manifested in order to have a place for retreat, meditation, puja, chemical free vegetable and good quality air to breath.

    Paul has been working and having meetings non stop even when he can’t sit up need not mention about walking. He will get well soon with Rinpoche’s prayers and blessings and all the Medicine Buddha pujas that has been done for him.

    Much care and prayers,
    Julia

  19. terri on Nov 7, 2013 at 3:15 am

    Dear Rinpoche, also can you please pray for our country the USA while you are here at home, things have been scary with our government shut downs and many mass shootings. I am so happy you are here blessing us with your wise presence.

  20. terri on Nov 7, 2013 at 3:07 am

    Dear Rinpoche, I have had a lot of suffering lately, so I have just learned of you coming to the US. I hope you will make your way to the West Coast sometime so I can see your blessed face.

  21. Joy on Nov 5, 2013 at 6:05 pm

    What beautiful teaching on a beautiful setting. Perfect for the practice! May all those who needs healing be benefited from this wonderful healing practice.

    When you think about it… Buddha is really “something”… He’s so wise to give and present to us so many different teachings, 108 volumes of it in fact (that’s a lot of bibles) and each focusing on different problems/neurosis we humans have on this planet earth and beyond I’m sure! I have not encountered any other religion or spiritual practice that has this type of versatility, wisdom and the vastness where by each and every single one has an antidote that deals immediately, directly with one’s problems and solves it at the root cause if we trully serious practice it. And thanks to spiritual masters/teachers like Tsem Rinpoche who has learned it, master it, preserved the teachings and now passes it on to others.

    This is why it is so important to always help the teachers/Lama, without them we would never receive these precious teachings such as this one we are receiving now. Without the Lama there is No Dharma. Hence making offering to the Guru/Sangha is of the highest form of offering. It is more powerful and meritorious than offering to a Buddha statue. Why cos the Buddha statue cannot give you teachings and transmission directly. Hence… Help one, help many http://vajrasecrets.com/offerings/offerings-to-tsem-rinpoche/urgent-help-rinpoche-to-benefit-more-people.html

  22. Joshua on Nov 5, 2013 at 12:47 pm

  23. Grace Leu on Nov 4, 2013 at 7:19 pm

    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing the Medicine Buddha teaching. It really help when people around us fall sick, we can conduct this prayer and dedicated to them.

  24. KH Ng on Nov 4, 2013 at 6:24 pm

    Dear Rinpoche,
    Thank You for the teachingson Medicine Buddha. It is a real blessing as always from You. I hope Paul will recover well and with Rinpoche’s and Medicine Buddha’s blessings along with all in Kechara, I am sure he will.
    Please take care and do what you need to in the US. We miss you and will await your return.

    With Folded Hands!

  29. justin cheah on Nov 4, 2013 at 12:44 am

    Dear Rinpoche,

    Thank you for the teaching. Interesting and good to be part of the people who will be doing this sacred practice for the benefit of parents, friends and pets.

    Thank you again Rinpoche for the teaching.

  30. Felicia Lee on Nov 3, 2013 at 11:50 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche, after listening the teaching of Medicine Buddha, I felt so blessed and pleased to have invited my beautiful 12″ medicine Buddha home almost 2 years ago. His presence gave immense positive energies to my whole family.

    Thank you.

  31. Sean Wang on Nov 3, 2013 at 11:18 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for sharing this lovely practice with everyone. Rinpoche is always caring about others, showing constant compassion for others. Medicine Buddha is a wonderful practice to help heal the sick.

    Turkey Swamp looks very nice. I hope that I can visit it one day and meditate there too!

  32. wansan on Nov 3, 2013 at 9:46 pm

    Thank You Rinpoche for sharing this beneficial and precious Medicine Buddha teaching. Turkey Swamp is definitely a beautiful place, peaceful and quiet. May Medicine Buddha bless everyone and May Paul recover as soon as possible.

  33. Patsy on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:52 pm

    Thank you, Rinpoche for this sacred teachings of Medicine Buddha practice from Turkey Swamp, New Jersey. Even from far away, Rinpoche never hesitate to share and teach the dharma and we are so fortunate to have Rinpoche with us. Thank you for the reminder that our precious human life is very short and we have wasted so much time before we met the dharma.

    May we all gain a healthy and strong body with Medicine Buddha practice and to use our lives to benefit others. May Rinpoche be blessed with long and stable life and remain with us to turn the wheel of dharma for the benefit of all sentient beings.

  34. Uncle Eddie on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:45 pm

    How really compassionate, caring and concern Rinpoche truly is! Even when he returned back to Turkey Swamp at New Jersey, he took the opportunity to do a “Medicine Buddha’s practice” for a good friend who is sick, to be healed. It seemed that he had not been back here since 30 years ago, and doing and recording this Teaching of Medicine Buddha practice has a special significance for Rinpoche. From the description of the favourable conditions of things at Turkey Swamp at that time seem to be perfect for Rinpoche’s practice. May Rinpoche continues to enjoy all such successes for all his future wishes. Om mani padme hung!

  35. May Ong on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:24 pm

    Dear Tsem Rinpoche,

    Thank you for sharing this beautiful Medicine Buddha sadhana for us to practice for our benefit. We are part of the team that will be starting the sadhana to dedicate to the quick recovery of Paul Yap’s health and complete the numbers required.

    You took the time to explain the benefits of this sadhana to us in great length, so therefore we will cherish this teaching in our hearts and share it with others online to benefit those that needs it.

    I can see it was a very cold and windy day at Turkey Swamp but the weather did not deter you from giving this teaching. Please do keep yourself warm, healthy and safe in your travels.

    With folded hands, your student

  37. guest on Nov 3, 2013 at 4:50 am

    Thanks for the teachings.
    If by any chance you’d have time in future, it’d be nice to read or listen about importance of sleep in buddhist practice – how to make it beneficial, how to use this natural phenomena to deepen own spiritual practice.
    Greetings.

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 1***

    According to His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Rinpoche, the Dharma Protector Dorje Shugden is a fully enlightened Buddha who appears in the form of a worldly god so that beings in this era can access his blessings quicker and more powerfully.

    Dorje Shugden is also known as the Protector of our time because, apart from guiding Buddhist practitioners on their path to Enlightenment, he also attends to our daily challenges and obstacles. Dorje Shugden does this not because he is a fulfiller of samsaric wishes but because in his omniscience, Dorje Shugden recognises that the human mind becomes distracted from Dharma practice by mundane problems. Hence alleviating our worries and fulfilling our wishes is just a means by which Dorje Shugden helps practitioners achieve the higher objective, i.e. a flourishing Dharma practice.

    The problems that people of our time encounter are common everywhere we go and they include:

    1) Financial problems
    2) Illnesses and diseases
    3) Natural disasters and epidemics
    4) Stres and depression
    5) Violent crimes and wars
    6) Loss of purpose and direction

    How Dorje Shugden Helps…

    ***The Advantages of Propitiating Dorje Shugden: Part 2***

    The Dharma Protector’s role is to ensure that practitioners have uninhibited access to the teachings, the clarity to understand the principles and meanings, and suitable conditions to apply what they have learned. And so, for the practitioner, the Dharma Protector functions to avert inner and outer obstacles the practitioner may encounter, and where necessary, provide conditions and resources for the practitioner’s Dharma journey to be smooth and unobstructed.

    Scary to know what exactly happened to Angel during her waking from sleep.Watched the video, wondering its sleep paralysis or the unseen beings pressing on her. This weird phenomenon as explained by Rinpoche is that she was karmically connected with the unseen beings.I do believe the unseen beings do exists after all, I am glad Angel is back to her own self , its over now.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing

    Sleep paralysis whether is science or paranormal.From what i read and hear to me its more paranormal as i do believe in unseen beings do exist after all. Sleep paralysis is more likely to be caused by paranormal distinct existence. I have not experience one before but at least i know now what i can do if it happen to me after reading this post.There are many other methods to protect ourselves just in case,like reciting our powerful mantra of Dorje Shugden( OM BENZA WIKI BITANA SOHA ) .
    Thank you Vinnie Tan for sharing this article.

    Interesting read from Tsemrinpoche.com

    Energy Channels
    This vital life force or chi, is composed of two kinds of forces, yin and yang, and flows along a sophisticated network of energy pathways, or highways, circuiting the body. Over 2000 years ago ancient cultures knew of the existence of these energy channels. They were called ‘sen’ in Thailand, ‘nadis’ in India, ‘meridians’, ‘channels’ or ‘vessels’ in China and Japan, and ‘channels’ in Tibet. In India, where many eastern healing arts developed, there were said to be 72,000 nadis or energy pathways. Disease is believed to be a blockage in the energy flow of these channels. A range of healing traditions, including acupuncture, acupressure, massage and yoga, are founded on the principle of the existence of energy channels or pathways, known as meridians, or nadis, running around the body in an expansive network.

    (REPLY FOR BEN)
    For Pastor Shin – Are pujas more effective than prayers?

    Pujas are more comprehensive as they involve rituals and prayers. In other words, prayers are part of a puja. Each puja is done based on scriptural texts and methods passed down by the lineage masters, which invokes the blessings of Buddhas/ meditational deities. Apart from recitation of mantras and meditation, ritual cakes (tormas) and other offerings are also done for pujas.

    You can read more about pujas here:

    – Powerful Pujas

    Fully enlightened beings can manifest in whatever form they so choose in order to benefit sentient beings. Buddhas can manifest in the form of a Lama, a spiritual friend and even in the form of sound, which are called mantras. In essence mantras are the holy energies of the Buddhas in the form of sound. Reciting mantras of the Buddhas, meditational deities (Yidams) and Dharma Protectors therefore invokes their blessings to bring about a beneficial impact in our lives.

    Very touching……. i do enjoyed watching those videos.
    So courage of John Byrne the homeless man to jump into the ice cold water to safe his pet rabbit.What he did was indeed incredible .His love and compassion for his pet rabbit and dog is an example,inspiration to us .
    Even though he is homeless yet he care and love his pet rabbit and dog so much giving food by begging.
    The man Gary Kearney who threw the pet rabbit was sentenced to four months detention.It show that the law do not tolerate cruelty to animals. A lesson to learn from here is to love.care and compassion to all sentient beings whatever happen to them.Never abused them.
    Thank you Rinpoche for sharing and i have shared with my friends too.

    **The Three Bodies of a Buddha**

    The primary manifestation of a fully enlightened being is called the Dharmakaya. “Dharma” means phenomenon, while “kaya” means body. Therefore, Dharmakaya refers to the primordial or true nature of phenomena which is beyond conceptual and dualistic thought. This manifestation is essentially the mind of a fully enlightened being, beyond appearance and sensory perception. This mind knows no limits or boundaries… more: http://www.dorjeshugden.org/blog/the-three-bodies-of-a-buddha

    By understanding Dorje Shugden’s enlightened nature, we realise that relying on him cannot lead us anywhere except for Enlightenment. Reciting any praise of Dorje Shugden on a daily basis reminds us of his attainments, and the type of being we are propitiating. It also serves as a reminder of the qualities we can attain as a result of relying on him, that his practice will help us to attain common and uncommon siddhis.

    Incense has been used as a traditional substance for offering since the birth of Buddhism. The first recorded instance of incense being used occurs in the story of Magadha Sangmo, whose impact can be seen across the ancient Buddhist world. The daughter of Suddatta, a layman and the Buddha’s primary patron, she herself was an ardent student of Buddha Shakyamuni. After marrying, she longed to see her Guru, the Buddha and offer dana. Climbing to the roof of her in-law’s house, she offered incense and a verse of invocation. The omniscient Buddha heard her prayers and arrived with his entire entourage, descending from the sky on a lion to fulfil her request.

The Unknown

The Known and unknown are both feared,
Known is being comfortable and stagnant,
The unknown may be growth and opportunities,
One shall never know if one fears the unknown more than the known.
Who says the unknown would be worse than the known?
But then again, the unknown is sometimes worse than the known. In the end nothing is known unless we endeavour,
So go pursue all the way with the unknown,
because all unknown with familiarity becomes the known.

You are born in suffering, live in suffering, die in suffering and enter bardo and future lives expecting more sufferings. This is not a negative way of looking at things but the truth. If the truth is negative, so it is the truth. Devote oneself to the guru, dharma work, dharma practice and bringing dharma to others compassionately.

Previous lives do resemble current lives especially if they are a recognized incarnation. If notice how similar the previous and current Trijang Rinpoche looks. The eyes, bone structure, expression, long neck, thin and overall look. Beautiful. I\'ve seen this phenomena over and over in many Rinpoche incarnations. Especially when you compare them with pictures of previous and current lives at around the same ages. Something powerfully karmic about this. Tsem Rinpoche

Beautiful! His Holiness Kyabje Trijang Dorje Chang has always been good friends with His Holiness Karmapa. No wonder H.H. Karmapa never spoke against Dorje Shugden. Two reasons perhaps: One is he knows the qualities of Trijang Rinpoche who is a attained being. And Karmapa himself has clairvoyance to perceive the true nature of Dorje Shugden directly. I love to see great beings like this manifesting closeness. When I see, I just want to prostrate to them and thank them for sharing such good examples to someone like me. Praise to the ego-less mind!

All Dorje Shugden prophesizes will come to pass,
 Those who generate refuge and merits will trust, 
 By trusting one will see the good results of his pronouncements,
 By seeing the good results, one\'s path becomes more clear, 
 The path of practice, purification and siddhic results, 
 This would eliminate the samsara within our minds.

It use to be that way in the great monasteries. We should not create problems and schisms. If we want to practice a protector, then do so, if not it's okay, but don't make trouble. One should just practice the Buddha Dharma well. To do good practice. If you have faith in Dorje Shugden and trust all the way, he will definitely help you. But most important is to practice the dharma. This is his advice in short here. It's good to let more Tibetans hear this holy speech and appeal by this very senior Rinpoche. TR
