Traditionally, Tibetans take medicines that have been blessed by the recitation of numerous mantras during the process of the making of the medicine. Thus when we take the medicine, we are taking in the blessing of the mantras. The doctor who makes the medicines recites many mantras during the process of making the medicine. Tibetan medicine helps many physical and mental ailments. In this class, Tulku Yeshi will give the oral transmission of many healing mantras that could be used for oneself, other people, pets, and all sentient beings.
Tulku Yeshi Rinpoche is a Dzogchen master and the reincarnation of Dzogchen Gyaltsab Thodo Rinpoche. He was recognized by H.H. Dalai Lama’s Nyingmapa teacher Kyabje Trulshig Rinpoche.
