Geshe will lead participants through the ceremony that includes Tibetan mantra, chanting, guided visualization and meditation one visualizes the Medicine Buddha, blue in color. One visualizes the Medicine Buddha’s healing energy radiating in all directions, practicing the healing mantra Tadyatha Om Bhekhaze Bhekhaze Maha Bhekhaze Bhekhaze Radza Samungate Swaha for at least one mala or 108 repetitions, and then one dissolves into the “great seal of emptiness," or rests the mind in the natural state, and dedicates the merit to all sentient beings. It is a beautiful, transformational practice which heals both the person who is the focus of attention as well as the practitioner. All are welcome and the practice is most effective when the person suffering is engaged in the process—they also practice the healing mantras and invite the healing in.
