Healing with Menla is balanced between just relieving ordinary life suffering and relieving the ultimate, ongoing suffering of samsara. Ordinary life suffering comes and goes and may even seem to end with death. But the suffereing of samsara is endless we cultivate a wakeful state of mind. The means of accomplishing these ordinarily seem quite different. For one, we take medicines. For the other we meditate. When we practice Menla, we apply a spiritual medicine, and we meditate on great enlightenment.
