Video: Healing Teacher-Guided Meditation & Mantras Black Manjushri: Zasep Rinpoche — especially recommended for Caronavirus and Cancers

Feature Contents

    In this Buddha Weekly teacher-guided video, Venerable Zasep Rinpoche recommends Black Manjushri to students for healing and protection, especially from Novel Coronavirus and other diseases, including cancer. Rinpoche guides us through the practice, visualization and mantras for this special healing practice treasured by Tibetan Buddhists — offering advice and commentary for both students who are initiated and those who are not (front visualization.) Chant along with Rinpoche, and visualize the blue healing light/energy of Black Manjushri. Rinpoche also explains when to visualize “Peaceful” Black Manjushri versus the more wrathful form.

    This is full 30-minute teaching, well-worth the full watch with commentary, guided visualization, wrathful versus peaceful imagery, mantra transmission (Rinpoche slowly says the mantra three times, you should repeat out loud), and then a short chant-along session with Rinpoche.

    Peaceful Black Manjushri is seated with a slightly “stern” face. Some people feel more comfortable visualizing Peaceful Black Manjushri, especially if they’ve been traumatized. Wrathful visualization can feel more powerful — reinforced by the symbolism of activity and fierceness.
