The mantra of medicine Buddha is TAYATA OM BEKANZAY BEKANZAY MAHA BEKANZAY RADZA SAMUDGATAY SOHA
Medicine Buddha is also called Bhaishajyaguru Vaiduryaprabha, the healing master of Lapis Lazuli Radiance. Like Amitaba he wears the robes of a monk. He holds the myrobalan plant which is used to heal mental and physical disease. Traditionally medicine Buddha is depicted with seven other Medicine Buddhas including Shakyamuni Buddha. Tibetan medicine is based on teachings given by Medicine Buddha. The root of all illness is explained to be the three primary delusions of hatred attachment and ignorance.
According to Lama Zopa Rinpoche, recitation of Medicine Buddha Mantra helps one to overcome obstacles of many kinds - not only medical problems. Medicine Buddha is helping my old car to stay on the road I am sure!
Medicine Buddha made powerful prayers to help beings of this degenerate age and so we have a special connection to him. By doing puja or reciting mantra we activate this connection, and in this way we can receive blessings.
