Medicine Buddha Initiation in Amsterdam with Geshe Sonam

In order to ensure my mind never comes under the power of the self-cherishing attitude,
I must obtain control over my own mind.
Therefore, amongst all empowerments, the empowerment that gives me control over my mind is the best,
and I have received the most profound empowerment with this teaching.

For those interested in the upcoming Medicine Buddha jenang (initiation) with Geshe Sonam Ngodup on the 27th of April, I wanted to give some information. Several people asked if the bodhisattva vows were necessary to take. Geshe la said that for the full initiation it is necessary to take the vows. However, for those who wish to take it as a blessing, they are not necessary.
