Medicine Buddha Today

It is about balance

Posted on Feb 24, 2019

One way to see how Menla works can be in the issue of balance. One dimension of balance can be between symptoms and attitude.

Most medicine aims to help us with our symptoms and as a possible side benefit, help us work with our problem in a better way. Medicine Buddha, on the other hand, helps us expand our world view so that symptomatic improvement flows more easily and naturally, which then helps us expand our world view even further. So, Medicine Buddha really helps us find health in both directions. But Medicine Buddha also helps us cover the spectrum of health more purposefully, more broadly and more effectively. Medicine Buddha honors and supports all healing methods, and also balances them with a sense of health that is beyond concept. Ultimately, health lies in the balance of all opposites and all polarities.
