As you are reading this blog, are thankful that you can see?

Are you thankful for your health as you complete your work or daily chores?

Are you thankful that you have the chance to be able to learn to be more like Buddha?

I was grateful when I was well and healthy, now that I am kind of under the weather for a while, I pray and supplicate to be healthy again so that I can get back on my feet and serve.

Here’s recommending Dawn Chen Peiqi’s new age composition with the Medicine Buddha Mantra.

“Sickness is an inevitable part of cyclic existence. No one is spared from it. It breaks my heart to see so many people and sentient beings around me suffer day in day out due to illnesses.

That anguish I felt drove me to seek refuge and liberation for myself and those inflicted with illnesses. And in the process of supplicating to the Medicine Buddha, I wrote a melody to the Medicine Buddha mantra.

TADYATA OM BHEKHANDZYE BHEKHANDZYE MAHA BHEKHANDZYE RAJA SAMUDGATE SVAHA
HOMAGE TO THE MEDICINE BUDDHA!

I pray that whoever hears this mantra, will be free forever from sickness and attain enlightenment!

Below is an excerpt of Lama Zopa Rinpoche’s advice for the sick or anyone who wishes to do the Medicine Buddha practice. His discourse moved me deeply and I hope that it can help you develop unshakeable faith in the Medicine Buddha too. May peace with you.”

~ Dawn Chen

Advice from Lama Zopa Rinpoche:
The Medicine Buddha stated that even an animal that hears his mantra, will never be reborn in the lower realms.
So with full trust in the Medicine Buddha, recite the mantra, knowing that Medicine Buddha will completely take care of your life and heal you. With full trust, know how Medicine Buddha is always with you, in your heart, on your crown, in front of you. There is not one second that Medicine Buddha does not see you or have compassion towards you.
As you listen to the mantra and chant along and pray in your heart:
“The purpose ofmy life is to free all beings from suffering and lead them to enlightenment, therefore, I am
going to do the Medicine Buddha practice, especially to purify the negative karma,
defilements, disease and spirit harm, as well as to do healing, so that I can have a healthy
and long life to offer service and actualize the path.”
Dedication the merits from chanting the mantra as follows:
“Due to all the merits of the past, present and future that I have collected and that others have collected, however many sick sentient beings there are may they be instantly liberated from their sicknesses and may sentient beings never get sick.”
