“Extinguishing Disaster & Prolonging Life”

Medicine Buddha Dharma Workshop

If you are interested in increasing the natural healing potential of your body and if wanted, supporting others to maintain a healthy body, you may be interested in learning this ancient Dharma. The Medicine Master Lapis Lazuli Light King Buddha Extinguishing Disaster and Prolonging Life Dharma is for spiritual healing, protection, and prevention of illness and disease, as well as for extinguishing disaster, extending life, and bringing forth good luck.

In this workshop, you will receive an Abhisheka Empowerment (pouring of holy water on your crown) which will enable you to successfully practice the Medicine Buddha Healing Dharma. This very powerful Dharma practice includes learning the Sanskrit version of the Medicine Buddha Mantra, along with the accompanying mudra (hand gesture) and visualization.

Besides doing this practice for your own self-cultivation, healing and protection, you will also learn a related group healing technique for others. Historically in Asia, plagues and epidemics were known to ravage populations from time to time, and through their great compassion and wisdom, Buddhist Masters developed these spiritual healing methods for use on large numbers of people.

Our teaching of the Medicine Buddha Dharma is a unique only to the Hanmi Esoteric School of Buddhism. This practice was formerly offered only to advanced, initiated disciples of a spiritual master after several years of preparation. It is now being offered to the general public, due to the great need for more people to learn how to heal themselves and others, using primarily spiritual techniques.

During the second half of the workshop, you will learn simple but effective techniques for purifying air, water and food. You should be able to immediately taste the difference in the food and water which you bless.

If you already have a healing practice the Abhisheka Empowerment will greatly enhance your present healing abilities, as well as your capacity to perform any of your other practices.

The sanskrit name of the Medicine Buddha is Bhaisajyaraja. The Chinese call him Yao Shi Fo, the Tibetans Sangye Menla, and the Japanese Yakushi. He is a great Master who made many vows to alleviate the suffering of all beings.


Black Manjusri Protection Dharma.    

This teaching was brought from India to China in 749 AD, and was traditionally taught only to initiated disciples. This dharma is used for spiritual protection from negative forces, and to extinguish accidents, disasters, and bad fortune. Black Manjusri helps to negate the effects of unfavourable astrological influences, builds a foundation for advanced Feng Shui, space clearing, and dealing with problems associated with unusual phenomenon. Sifu Jules has extensive knowledge of this practice to enable participants to fully understand and utilise this ancient Dharma.

During the workshop you will learn the sanskrit mantra and a number of techniques that will enable you to have spiritual protection for you and your loved ones.  It is especially useful if you are someone who works closely with the public.

The Heart Sutra is one of the most important texts in the Buddhist world and one that underpins the knowledge and understanding of compassion and equanimity.    The Hanmi School offers a beautiful meditation as transmitted by Dharma King Dechen Juren.  In addition, Sifu Jules has developed a deep knowledge and wisdom of this ancient text and can guide you through to help you develop peace within your heart. 

Once you have undertake the Medicine Buddha Dharma, you will be able to attend the monthly healing update and development session with Sifu Jules.  This is a small and friendly group of people who all wish to advance their knowledge and skill in energy healing. You may also wish to bring along a guest to receive and experience the delight of a group healing session. Sessions are held on line and face to face on one Saturday in each month.
