Check-out Time:

Land of Medicine Buddha is a center devoted to the transmission of the Mahayana Buddhist tradition and values through teaching, meditation, and community service, located in the Santa Cruz Mountains. This organization is based on the Buddhist tradition of Lama Tsong Khapa of Tibet as taught to them by their founder, Lama Thubten Yeshe and their Spiritual Director, Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Land of Medicine Buddha is a unique facility providing Tibetan Buddhist teachings, retreats, healing, a beautiful physical environment, and much more.

Land of Medicine Buddha is home to three beautiful large prayer wheels, and many smaller ones as well. The Mani Wheel outside the main hall is packed with 64 billion om mani padme hum mantras, microfilmed from an original script written by His Holiness Dalai Lama. This is one of the most powerful prayer wheels on earth. The large prayer wheel in the Ksitigarbha garden has 11.8 billion mantras, and the Ksitigharba statue is being surrounded by thirty-two smaller prayer wheels each holding over one million mantras. At the entrance to the center (near the bookstore), work is in progress to completely fill our big prayer wheel with the mantra of compassion, as well as other mantras for long life, to clear obstacles, purify negativities and develop wisdom.
