Teyata OM bekandze bekandze maha bekandze randza samugate soha
The Medicine Buddha (Sangye Menla in Tibetan, the Lord of Healing) represents the healing power of enlightened beings. He is known as the deity of medicine in Tibet and among Buddhists. The name of the medicine Buddha is believed to have the power to free a person from the diseases of anger and ignorance that can afflict the mind and impede liberation from suffering.
This protection and healing amulet is made up of prayers and mantras inscribed on paper that are then folded and tied together with colored strings. It is not made to be worn, but carried in a pocket or kept in a person’s home. When worn, the amulet is believed to have healing power, and aid the person carrying it in their person to be protected from harm, evil, illness, or any affliction that may hinder their health and meditation practice.
Buddhists believe that the name and image of the Medicine Buddha have healing properties as well, and that to see an image of Sangye Menla, or hear his name, can provide healing as well. Reciting the Medicine Buddha’s mantra, too, is a powerful way to invoke his blessings, and aid in a person’s—and the planet’s—healing.
Ki ki so so!
