The Medicine Buddha encompasses all the buddhas. This means that when we practice the seven-limb prayer and make offerings with the seven limbs, were receive the same merit as we would if we had made offerings to all the buddhas. Similarly, when we recite the mantra of Medicine Buddha, we collect unbelievable merit just as when we offer the seven-limb practice to Medicine Buddha.To recite the Medicine Buddha mantra brings inconceivable merit. Manjushri requested the eight Tathagatas Guru Shakyamuni Buddha and the seven Medicine Buddhas to reveal a special mantra that would make the prayers the eight Tathagatas made in the past prayers to be able to actualize the happiness of sentient beings by attaining the path to enlightenment and pacifying various problems, to be able to see all the buddhas, and for all wishes to be quickly realized to quickly come to pass, especially for those sentient beings born inthe time of the five degenerations who have small merit and who are possessed and overwhelmed by various diseases and spirit harms.During that time, all the eight Tathagatas, in one voice, taught the MedicineBuddha mantra.
Therefore, if you recite the mantra every day, the buddhas and bodhisattvas will always pay attention to you, and they will guide you. Vajrapani, owner of the secrets, and the four guardians will always protect and guide you. All your negative karmas will be pacified, and you will never be born in the three lower realms. Even just hearing a recitation of the names of the eight Tathagatas pacifies all diseases and spirit harms even spirit harms that arise as a condition of disease and all your wishes are fulfilled.
