Kelsang Osung on the Medicine Buddha Empowerment (Kadam Bridget, March ’11)

Osung Kelsang

K. Osung – Heruka centre Sangha made Conway hall look very beautiful for the empowerment. It was so lovely to catch-up with old friends there.
Jas – Kelsang Osung was happy to share her experiences of the recent Medicine Buddha Empowerment with us.

K. Osung – There were many firsts for me: during the empowerment the smallest disciple spontaneously threw up! Odd sound to hear during meditation. But what does it mean?

Medicine Buddha

Jas – ¯\(°_°)/¯  LoL I’ve never had that one .

K. Osung – Later we recited the mantra together 108 times. After dissolving my winds I floated through the remainder of the day!
Jas mmmm : )

K. Osung – I met a beautiful Dakini Lady there who told me about her relationship with White Tara. Whenever she was in difficulties, she would see Her face and all would turn out OK!
Jas White Tara’s beautiful.
K. Osung – Another Dakini Lady, who had come to hear Geshe-la’s Dharma for the very first time, was very moved by Geshe-la’s Long Life prayers.
I gave her a copy to take home as a souvenir.

When she received the bala and mandana after the puja she looked at me puzzled. “It is a very special blessing for your future life! ” I told her. She looked delighted and tasted the ‘Nectar’.
Jas Sounds like a good weekend 🙂

Jo Pagz on the Medicine Buddha Empowerment (Kadam Bridget, March ’11)

Jo – I went, and I feel good!!
Jo on Sunday night, after his weekend with other Kadampas in London.
Jas –  That’s brilliant 🙂
What do you feel so good about?

Jo – I just do LoL. I like Bridget because she is witty, clear and down to earth in her style, but also very deep in her wisdom.

“The empowerment itself was powerful”

The way Bridget taught around it – the introduction and talk after – were so comprehensive and well delivered.
Blew my socks off… if you see them let me know 😉

Jas  Will do. And I agree with you about Bridget, I’m a big fan. She comes across as very compassionate, too. I think she knows how delusions tie us in unhappy little knots; but she also knows the best way we can unravel them.

Jo lives in London, England

Medicine Buddha empowerment in London with Kadam Bridget – Did you go?

Did anyone go to the Medicine Buddha empowerment in London with Kadam Bridget?

Trick question, because I know lots did ~
but you don’t fancy writing a snippet for here do you?

You know,  just a few lines on something you found inspiring, challenging or helpful.

Share that Dharma!

PS.
All apologies for putting Gen Dekyong originally. My bad. I don’t believe I did that! *blush*
And there’s more ‘MKMC Snippets’ to come from this year’s Dharma events, so there’s no rush. But if something stayed with you from the teaching, then it’s probably worth sharing.
