Abstract: This paper is a keynote presentation for a conference on pastoral care and counselling. The author uses story-telling to present Buddhism as a religion whose basic philosophy is to recognize suffering and provide a healing path to self-awareness. He discusses the Buddha in his role as 'the Great Physician' and meditation as the process for self-healing, writing that "what a Buddhist would offer as the primary tool in pastoral care would be meditation." (p. 16). The author concludes by demonstrating meditation as mind-cultivation to care-givers so that they may better help others.
