Featured Article: What is the Medicine Buddha Mantra?
The Medicine Buddha Mantra comes from the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. The oldest known references to the Medicine Buddha are texts from the seventh century. “Bekandze” means “the elimination of suffering” and is repeated three times for the removal of suffering on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels. The three repetitions can also be viewed as eliminating the three poisons of ignorance, hatred, and attachment. Read about my own extraordinary experience with the Medicine Buddha Mantra.
Lyrics: Tayata Om Bekandze Bekandze Maha Bekandze Randze Samu Gate Soha
Meaning: May the many sentient beings who are suffering be freed of all pain including disease, death and karma and may this suffering never arise again.
