The Medicine Buddha practice and teachings originated with the Bon Buddha Tonpa Shenrab. The Medicine Buddha is a compassionate manifestation of Tonpa Shenrab. Through ceremony, meditation, and visualization we are freed from obstacles in our lives and protected from illness. This healing practice and the blessing of Tonpa Shenrab restore the power and qualities of our energy. This practice and teaching is for all who are ill or in need of healing.

Latri Nyima Dakpa Rinpoche is the author of “Opening the Door to Bon” and the abbot and lineage holder of the La Tri Monastery in Kham/Dege, Eastern Tibet. Rinpoche studied at Menri Monastery and received his Geshe degree in 1987. He is the founder and Director of the Bön Children’s Home in Dolanji, where he is in charge of providing for the physical and educational needs of Bon orphan children. He is the founder of the Yeru Bon Center in Los Angeles; the Shen Ten Ling Bon Centre in Vienna; the Shen Chen Ling in Minsk (Belarus); and the Bon Shen Ling in Moscow, and travels regularly to these centers to give teachings.
