Again, in the vain of sharing something more personal about me: many of you know that besides being a Reiki Master, I also paint healing art. As I am just fulfilling a print order for one of my favorite paintings, the Medicine Buddha, I thought to tell you a bit about how I make my art, as well as share the blessings of the Medicine Buddha.
Fine Art of the Healing Buddha
This painting is a close-up of a Medicine Buddha Thankha painting. Therefore I choose to follow traditional thankha painting practices. Thankha painters meditate on the meaning and the power of the deity while painting.
The Medicine Buddha is the healing Buddha. He is a very powerful and important deity in Tibetan Buddhism. While everyone can pray to the Medicine Buddha, a Rimpoche (high lama) can attune individuals to the Medicine Buddha, making their prayers to the Medicine Buddha more powerful.
In my case, first studied the Medicine Buddha (oh, and I have still a lot more to learn…) and obtained Medicine Buddha attunement. Then while painting, I alternated sending Reiki to the painting, reciting the Medicine Buddha prayer and the Medicine Buddha seed mantra. It took 2 months to complete this painting.
Medicine Buddha Mantra
Medicine Buddha Mantra Chant
I am a Reiki Master Teacher in Harpswell, Maine. I’m just setting up my Reiki practice. I am a practicing Buddhist — my teacher is Rinpoche Lobzang Tsetan, a friend of the Dalai Lama’s. He is Abbot of the Tashi Lhunpo monastery in India and also the founder of the Siddhartha School (for Tibetan children) in Ladakh, India.
I too chant to the Medicine Buddha, but would love to be attuned to him. Do you know of a Lama who can do this with me? Rinpoche read to me from one of his Tibetan texts about administering Reiki (white light). I’d like to bring my Buddhist energy to my Reiki practice.
A Lee, Reiki Master Teacher, 'We Are One World Healing' says
oh, it’s easy. You have to ‘practically beg’ to be attuned to your teacher and/or to (one of) the lama(s) who work with him.
Put the request out at Tibetan New Year, offering a white scarf and an envelop with a cash donation will go some way. You may have to wait half a year. Meanwhile, you will get to do work with the Medicine Buddha beforehand for quite some time, probably.
Essentially what this practice does is strengthening you, before you’ll get your attunement. You can pray to the Medicine Buddha also without being attuned, however your energetic power will be less.
I hope this clarifies.
Best is to ask people in your community how to go about it.
