Medicine Buddha is the manifestation of the healing energy of all enlightened beings. Prayers to Medicine Buddha are especially powerful because of the extensive prayers they took to benefit sentient beings. They strongly prayed for the temporal and ultimate happiness of all sentient beings; they vowed that their prayers would be actualized during these times.
- Venerable Samten recites the puja in Tibetan. You can follow along in the prayer book, FPMT Essential Buddhist Prayers, Volume 2, starting on page 102.
Sunday is the day that the puja is scheduled at a regular time so that it’s easier for working people to join in consistently via Facebook, but the Medicine Buddha Puja is performed five days a week at Land of Medicine Buddha, usually by Venerable Samten and occasionally by other staff members.
If you would like to request a prayer – so that you or a loved one receives dedications of the merit at the end of the puja – go to:
No registration required to sit in on the puja.
