Medicine Buddha Invocation

I prostrate to the King of Peaceful Radiance, the Master of Healing, the Perfectly Awakened! You benefit all living beings, protect us from the miseries of inferior realms, and dispel the three poisons and their resultant ailments by the power of your Name. I pray to the Supreme Healer, victorious over the three poisons! 

You hold in your right hand a stem of myrobalan, the antidote to all physical ailments, and in your left hand a bowl of nectar to purify the mind. The rays emanating from your body penetrate all directions of cyclic existence to bless and cure all sentient beings of physical and mental disorders, and dispel negative karma. 

For all beings, may your Name, the nectar of all healing, always be on our lips! May it subdue the four hundred and four diseases caused by physical imbalances. May it also subdue the one thousand and eighty types of harmful interferences and the three hundred and sixty obstacles that provoke mental illness. 

You entered into the Samadhi “Eliminating the Suffering and Afflictions of Sentient Beings” and spoke the Medicine Buddha Dharani for the benefit of all sentient beings: “Reverence to the Lord Master of Healing, King of Peaceful Radiance, the Conqueror, the Perfectly Enlightened! It is thus! You are the Healing Substance, the Act of Healing, and the Master of Healing. To your supreme way I perfectly surrender!”

In the Land of Snows and elsewhere in this world, by your mercy and the grace of our lineage Masters, we recite your mantra with clarity, purity, and divine pride: “It is thus! To the Healing Substance, the Act of Healing, and the Master of Healing, I surrender.”
