Medicine Buddha

My friend is having surgery tomorrow.  Last night my husband and I stopped by to see her and drop off some DVDs for her to watch during her recovery.

I also gave her a CD with the Medicine Buddha mantra on it and a candle I made.  I bought a blue candle at the grocery store, the type in a clear glass cylinder.  Then I created a template in Word that would cover it.  I inserted pictures and text, then print, glue, and voila:

Medicine Buddha Candle

My friend really liked it, her Catholic upbringing notwithstanding.  I don’t know whether it will provide any metaphysical healing.  But I’m pretty sure it will bring her comfort, knowing it was made for her with love.

“My religion is kindness,” said the Dalai Lama.

Indeed.
