Beautifying the Buddha of Healing

5 December 2012 - 12:54am Comments Off

With the motivation for all to practice compassion and empathy, H.E. Tsem Rinpoche presented an 18” Medicine Buddha statue to Kechara House. Known as Menlha in Tibetan, Medicine Buddha encourages healing of all levels – physical, mental and emotional healing for those in need.

Kechara’s arts studio adorned the Medicine Buddha’s face with gold dust, and painted the hair and intricate features. The team also inserted traditional rolled paper mantras, incense, and holy items such as protector string, protector rice, chakras, precious stones, mani pills, and Tsem Rinpoche’s guru’s hair.

The completed Medicine Buddha statue, as well as a Tsongkhapa and Setrap tsa tsa, will be used by our pastors when they visit those who are ill, in hospital, or for bereavement ceremonies. Both tsa tsas are encased in acrylic, along with a blessed Protector string for added blessings.
