16. Medicine Buddha Sadhana 15 The Benefits Of This P ractice: In the sutra “ Medicine Guru Beams of Lapis Lazuli” , Shakyamuni Buddha said : “ Ananda , do you believe my explanation of the qualities of the Medicine Buddha?” Ananda replied to the Buddha : “ I do not have a two - pointed mind with regard to th e teachings of the Buddha . Why? Beca use the actions of the Buddha’s body, speech, and mind are always pure, And without a single mistake. ” Shaky amuni Buddha also gave this advice: “Ananda , whoever hears the holy name of Medicine Buddha will not fall into the evil realms . ” Thus, to be of help to the dying , Generate r enunciation towards samsara and with a Bodhicitta mind , R ecite both the Medi cine Buddha’s name and his mantra in to the ear of those dying beings . There are unbelievable benefits to recite the mantra s and blo w it upon the meat that one eats , and even upon old bones or dead bodies of humans and animals . It purifies the karmic obscuratio ns of those beings and cause s those who have already been reborn in the lower real ms to be transmigrate in to a pure land or higher samsara. At least, it will shorten the duration of their suffering in the lower realms. This is a brief explanation of the benefits of the Medicin e Buddha practice. It is especially beneficial if one is helpin g others, doing Reiki and healing work. One be comes m or e accurate and beneficial and will be blessed to receive much divine help and intervention from the E ight Buddhas, Bodhisattvas, Yaksha Generals and D evas as well. They will also help to diagnos e and understand the method s to heal . By reciting his mantra, I t will greatly enhance the power of all supplements and medicine s that one is taking or giving to others. Put the medicine in front of you and above it arises a moon disc . In the middle is the blue seed - syllable HUNG surrounded by the syllables of the Medicine Buddha m antra in a clockwise direction. While reciting the mantra s , necta rs flow from the syllables, absorbing into the medic ine. The y then dissolve into the medicine and become extremely beneficial to treat and cure all ph ysical diseases and their causes, afflictions caused by spirits , negative karma and mental obscurations. Even w ith cancer, this h as the power to treat and cure . The s tronger one’s faith and the more mantras one recites, the greater the effect will be . If we choose to meditate upon Lord Medicine Buddha, one will eventually awaken and will experience an increase in healing energies and powers, benefitting many others and ourselves and a decrease in physical and mental illness and suffering. - Namdrol Rinpoche -
