Medicine Buddha Meditation

Source of the painting:

As my pdey samlanh is recently not well and having some cold, hopefully not turning into a influenza, I do for him now every day the Medicine Buddha meditation and mantra. This meditation is not only used to seek help and support during an own illness, but can perfectly be used to be practised for somebody else, even over distance, this is not a problem. I hope that this besides all my Love, support and care will help him to recover quickly.

Meditating on the Medicine Buddha frees us from diseases and basic ignorance, and leads to ultimate Buddhahood.

The Mantra of the Medicine Buddha is: "TEYATA; OM BEKANDZE BEKANDZE; MAHA BEKANDZE; RANDZA SAMUDGATE; SOHA" The Mantra and Medicine Buddha meditation is used to eliminate not only pain of diseases but also help in overcoming the major inner sickness of attachment, hatred, jealousy, desire, greed and ignorance.

"If one meditates on the Medicine Buddha, one will eventually attain enlightenment, but in the meantime one will experience an increase in healing powers both for oneself and others and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering."
—Lama Tashi Namgyal
