By understanding everything you perceive from the perspective of the view, you are freed from the constraints of philosophical beliefs.
By understanding that any and all mental activity is meditation, you are freed from arbitrary divisions between formal sessions and postmeditation activity.

So it is not "new-age" but hundreds of years old from Tibetan traditions?..

I'm deaf/hearing-impaired - what if you can't hear or understand the teacher of the class?

And two great Dzogchen Teachers have even written books about the Medicine Buddha, Khenchen Thrangu Rinpoche and H.H. Dudjom Rinpoche.

http://www.namsebangdzo.com/Medicine_Bu ... /12745.htm

Chögyal Namkhai Norbu Rinpoche often gives the Lung transmission for the Medicine Buddha as well (of course we don't need the Lung transmission in order to practice a Sutra version of the Medicine Buddha Sadhana).

Maybe I'll ask Jesus and follow him to whichever Lama/Guru is best for me.
