Medicine Buddha Practice


Medicine Buddha is a Buddhist deity associated with health and well-being. During this practice, we make heartfelt prayers that everyone, including ourselves, our loved ones, and all sentient beings, will be healed of all sickness and will become free of all suffering.


Medicine Buddha is one of many Buddhas who have attained the state of perfect enlightenment for the benefit of all sentient beings. Sangye Menla, who is sky-blue in color, has attained the enlightened mind free of all negativity, a mind that has perfected all positive qualities.


His beautiful blue body signifies omniscient wisdom and compassion as vast as limitless space, and he is particularly associated with healing both mental and physical suffering.

Making a connection with him, practicing meditation, reciting his mantra or even just saying his name helps us achieve our potential for ultimate healing.
