The Tibetan medical system is an extremely complex subject with its roots deeply embedded in Buddhist philosophy. Within the Tantric Buddhist lineage of Mahayana there exist many healing methods, which have been developed to help us link to our absolute healing energy; offering us solutions to the deep and difficult sicknesses experienced in modern times. By meditating, for example, on the healing archetype of Medicine Buddha with a feeling of love and compassion towards the sick and suffering, it is possible to contact an absolute healing energy that can be of use to ourselves and our patients. There is absolutely no need for us to change our healing techniques or work environment, because as we contact this healing energy our everyday working practice will automatically begin to change: we will have a different feeling, a new wisdom and a deeper inner certainty about which approach, medicine or therapy will help each patient. We need to experience this change directly, because it is only through personal experience that our faith in this method will grow and strengthen.
This practice teaches us how to connect with the absolute power and pure energy of Supreme Healer Buddha Shakyamuni Tubwang Tendrelma, he who Holds the Perfect Capacity to Heal through the Dependent Arising of all Phenomena, and who compassionately manifested Medicine Buddha at his seven chakras.
By opening our minds and hearts to a different healing system, and following the NgalSo Self-Healing Practice of the Seven Medicine Buddhas, we are opening the door to our inner healing power. Once we have understood how to access this power, we can use it to heal both others and ourselves by alleviating the physical and mental suffering of mankind.
This sadhana is beneficial for all those who wish to work on their own physical and mental healing, but also for those who work professionally in the medical and therapeutic fields.
