Medicine Buddha Prayers

TADYATA OM BHEKHANDZYE BHEKHANDZYE 
MAHA BHEKHANDZYE
RADZA SAMUDGATE SVAHA
If we can recite Medicine Buddha mantra every day and is good to do at least 5 malas, this will purify negative karma and will help you never to be reborn in the lower realms. According to Medicine Buddha sutra that even if an animal hears the Medicine Buddha mantra it will never be reborn in the lower realms.

If we don’t purify negative karma, when dying because of negative karma that not been purified, so we will be reborn in the lower realms as a hell being, hungry ghost or animal, and repeatedly without end. We need to purify the negative karma now. If you cannot bear the sickness now, how can we bear the suffering of the lower realms?

Medicine Buddha mantra prevents us from experiencing these related suffering, it is more precious than gold, diamonds or wish-fulfilling jewels all this wealth means nothing because it can’t purify all the negative karma. 

Medicine Buddha mantra is precious because it leaves imprints of the whole path to enlightenment in your mind; it helps you to have realizations of the  to enlightenment. 

It ceases all the gross and subtle defilements and makes you achieve enlightenment. Besides the benefits you receive from reciting Medicine Buddha mantra and also these are the benefits just from hearing the mantra.
