Medicine Buddha (Healing Buddha)
Medicine Buddha (Bhaishajyaguru Buddha) is relevant to both sutra and tantra traditions of Mahayana. In Bhaisajyaguru Sutra, Buddha Sakyamuni explains that Bhaishajyaguru took special vows during his path to enlightenment to benefit beings through healing physical, emotional and mental illnesses. Due to the power of this vow, upon attaining enlightenment, Bhaishajyaguru's wisdom mind continu...ously manifests its compassion to remove illness. Anyone who opens their mind through making connection to Bhaishajyaguru Buddha can benefit from this manifestation of healing energy. This is particularly effective for physical and mental diseases arising due to imbalance of the elements. According to Tantra (Vajrayana), Medicine Buddha (Bhaishajyaguru) is the healing aspect of our primordially pure awareness. Through the tantric practice of Medicine Buddha, we attune into this healing aspect of our own primordial nature and use its innate potential to cure all diseases of body and mind. Since this practice relies on our primordially enlightened nature, like every other practice of Vajrayana, it is also possible to take Medicine Buddha as one's meditational deity for enlightenment. Medicine Buddha is also critical to medical tantras that come in association with traditional medical systems of Tibet and ancient India.
Upon receiving empowerment of Medicine Buddha, the aspirants can practise meditation with the support of visualization and mantra to heal illnesses.
Suitability: This empowerment is highly recommended for all who have an interest in Vajrayana Buddhism and willing to accept blessings from a master. This empowerment is not expected to have many practice commitments and hence is also suitable for those who are new to Vajrayana and yet are desirous to enter the path.
