850 year old lineage, on your doorstep
The Martsang Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism is an unbroken lineage based on the teachings of Shakyamuni Buddha’s sutras and tantras which was founded 850 years ago by Choje Marpa Sherab Yeshe in 1167 (1134-1203).
This beautiful healing practice will be taught in full and includes an empowerment from the Great Master H.H. the twelfth Gangri Karma Rinpoche.
As you may be aware the Medicine Buddha Empowerment is the most powerful blessing for healing illness of body, mind and awakening the innate healing wisdom that lies within each of us. Practitioners of Tibetan Medicine chant the Medicine Buddha Mantra before doing consultations, and they regularly take the Medicine Buddha Empowerment to maximize their healing abilities. It is very good to take Medicine Buddha Empowerment as much as you can.
Lama Chopa is a practice of guru devotion special to the Martsang Kagyu tradition of Tibetan Buddhism. In Sanskrit, lama is guru, and chopa is offering, so Lama Chopa translates into English as “offering to the spiritual guide.”
This special Lama Chopa practice dedicated to Choje Marpa Sherab Yeshe (1134-1203) the founder of the Martsang Kagyu School, was originally compiled by Drogon Richen and has subsequently been reedited by His Holiness Gangri Karma Rinpoche.
