Zen Practice Service – Yaksayeorebul (Bhaisajyaguru) Celebration
August 27 @ 9:00 am - 11:00 am
We honor the Buddha of Healing in Mahāyāna Buddhism (Bhaisajyaguru), commonly referred to as the “Medicine Buddha”. This Buddha is described as a doctor who cures dukkha (suffering) and karmic ills of body and mind using various medicines of the profound and subtle dharma. This Sunday’s ceremony focuses on aspirations for healing and wellness for friends, loved ones, and ourselves as we concentrate on Yaksayeorebul (in Korean), through mantra chanting, offerings, recitations of the names of those who need some TLC, and dedication of merit for the wellbeing of all who suffer. Namu Yaksayeorebul!
