Event Details

On Saturday 14th September 6pm, FPMT centres and study groups around Australia will hold Medicine Buddha Pujas. We aim to raise funds for our Australian FPMT nuns and monks through this meritorious activity. This activity reminds us of all that our sangha do for us, which includes the undertaking of pujas and prayers.

Vajrayana will be sponsoring the puja so instead of bringing offerings of fruit and flowers please bring a monetary donation for the Australian FPMT Sangha Fund.

A puja is a special ceremony in which prayers are offered to the Buddhas or different manifestations of enlightened beings to request their blessings or invoke their help.

Most commonly this puja is performed on behalf of sick people to assist with recovery from illness or an operation and those who are dying. It is also done to achieve higher rebirth for the deceased and is very powerful in bringing about success, both temporary and ultimate. The prayers invoke help from the Seven Medicine Buddhas and Buddha Shakyamuni.

Pujas are performed to avert and clear the three types of obstacles which arise due to the lack of merit, which prevent us from achieving our worldly and spiritual goals. These include issues affecting our day to day life, our mental and physical health and difficulties we might be experiencing in Dharma practice. Removing these obstacles will help us to achieve happiness and good fortune in all our activities.
