In this Friday Night Lecture we will explore different Buddhist healing practices that help overcome physical sicknesses and mental pain. In particular, the evening will include an introduction to the meditation practices of Buddha Amitayus (the Buddha of long life) and Medicine Buddha (the Buddha of healing), and will conclude with a short guided meditation related to Medicine Buddha practice.
