The Medicine Buddha is the Buddha of healing. He is widely worshipped in China and Tibet for his gifts of health and bolstering of individual enlightenment. In feng shui, he is used for dispelling negative sickness energy and inviting health luck in particular.
The Medicine Buddha is known for taking twelve vows detailing his personal commitment to help heal all those suffering from sickness or injury, whether physical, mental, or spiritual, so that they may reach enlightenment. He swore to aid the poor and the infirm, those born with deformities, the starving, the disillusioned, the delusional, the thirsty, and the otherwise afflicted by enabling the satisfaction of their material needs and helping them on the true and moral path to enlightenment.
The Medicine Buddha is also known as the blue or lapis lazuli Buddha and is depicted in such a color with his left hand holding a pot of sacred medicine and his right hand in the mudra of blessing. The Medicine Buddha also has the stem of a Myrobalan plant, fabled for its healing properties of the three conflicting emotions (desire, anger, and ignorance) which are at the root of all illness. The Medicine Buddha’s mantra is “Tadyatha Om Bekandzye Bekandzye Maha Bekandzye Radza Samugate Soha,” and is well honored for its ability to invite healing on many levels. It translates to “May the many sentient beings who are sick, quickly be freed from sickness. And may all the sicknesses of beings Never arise again”.
