Medicine Buddha (Tibetan སངས་རྒྱས་སྨན་བླ Sangye Menla) is also known as Bhaiṣajyaguru Vaidurya (‘Guru-Healer of Azure Radiance’) – head of the eight Medicine Buddhas. He made twelve great vows with the intent that all sentient beings will realize that which they pray for. It is said that Medicine Buddha practice has an incredible power. Even just repeating the name of this Buddha will protect you from illness and negative rebirths. If you chant the mantra of Medicine Buddha every day, you will be protected from all illness beforehand and your bad karma will be purified. You will also be able to tame all evil spirits. Prayers to the Buddha of Medicine are effective for the auspicious resolution of problems in daily life.
Buddha Shakyamuni in a conversation with his disciple Ananda said: “If sentient beings [those that are immersed in the abyss of samsaric suffering]’ hear the name of Tathagata Guru-Healer of Azure Radiance and accept him with the utmost sincerity and if they remember him without any doubt, then they will not fall into the path of bad rebirths.”
