Medicine Buddha has made a vow to help those
who call upon him when ill or injured, and to aid those who revere
him to achieve a long and healthy life. As Amitabha is the Buddha
of the Pure Land of the Western Paradise, the Medicine Buddha
is the Buddha of the Pure Land of the Eastern Paradise.
The mantra of the Medicine Master Buddha Dispels
Calamities and Lengthens Life. Devotees recite his mantra, seeking
the blessings and compassion of the Medicine Master Buddha to
help dispel their karmic obstacles, to free them from sufferings,
illnesses and afflictions, and consequently lengthening their
lives - hence this is A Mystic Formula for Dispelling Disease
This healing mantra, fervently recited 7 times
or 49 times or 109 times depending on the situation - over a glass
of plain water is able to relieve or heal a sick person. On such
an occasion, the above practice should be done daily (or a few
times a day as the situation requires) until the sick person recovers.
Devotees who wish to uphold this mantra should sincerely attempt
to recite it everyday 3 times, 7 times or according to one's wisdom.
