I am new to this community. It seems pretty inactive but I hope that changes.
I really like the idea of this place, and am actually surprised that it is inactive at all. I know one of the reasons I was drawn to Buddhism was because of my own suffering with depression and mental illness. It guides me and helps me find peace within my existence.

I am curious if anyone else here has worked with Bhaisajyaguru, or Medicine Buddha.

"If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and others and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering." —Lama Tashi Namgyal

I have been interested in the powers of the Medicine Buddha for a long time, and just ordered a book called Medicine Buddha Teachings. I am eager for it to arrive. I think a lot can be learned from this figure, especially by members of this community.

Blessings to you all. Namaste.

March seems to have been more active in here.

Has your book arrived yet? Maybe you could share some info from it with this community? I'm not a Buddhist but I like some of the teachings. Could you tell me more about the medicine Buddha. I thought there was only one man named Buddha.

Hope to hear from you.

As I understand it, Buddha is a title, not a name necessarily. We are all capable of reaching Buddhahood, and there have been many Buddhas. This is what I know of, anyway.

I plan on getting further in the book and then typing up some information to the community. I have a lot of attention problems and focus/ concentration issues, so it is slow going. But I will type up more once I've made my way a bit. ^__^
