The Name-Recitation of Medicine Buddha
T’HUK-JE KÜN LA NYOM-PAY CHOM-DEN-DAY
Bhagavān who is equal towards all in his compassion,
TS’HEN TSAM T’HÖ-PAY NGEN-DRO’I DUK-NGEL SEL
Merely hearing your name dispels the suffering of the lower realms,
DUK SUM NAY SEL SANG-GYAY MEN GYI LA
You clear away the sicknesses of the three poisons, Buddha Medicine Guru:
BAIDURYA YI Ö LA CHHAK-TS’HEL LO
To Vaidūrya Light, I bow down.
CHOM-DEN-DAY DE-ZHIN-SHEK-PA DRA-CHOM-PA YANG-DAK-PAR DZOK-PAY SANG-GYAY MEN-GYI-LA BAIDŪRYA Ö KYI GYEL-PO LA CHHAK-TS’HEL LO/ CHHÖ DO/ KYAP SU CHHI’O
TO THE BHAGAVĀN, THE TATHĀGATA, THE ARHAT, THE PERFECTLY COMPLETE BUDDHA GURU OF MEDICINE, KING OF VAIDŪRYA LIGHT, I PROSTRATE, MAKE OFFERINGS, AND GO FOR REFUGE.
Recite this as much as possible.
GE-WA DI YII NYUR DU DAK
By this virtue, may I swiftly
MEN GYI GYEL-PO DRUP GYUR NAY
Accomplish the King of Medicine,
DRO-WA CHIK KYANG MA-LÜ-PA
And through that, may I establish all beings without a single exception
DE YI SA LA GÖ-PAR SHOK
On that same level.
With that, make prayers of dedication.
KHYEY LA TÖ CHING SÖL-WA-TAP-PAY T’HÜ
Through the power of praising and supplicating you,
DAK SOK GANG-DU NAY-PAY SA-CHHOK DER
For myself and all others, in whatever places we live,
NAY DANG ÜL-P’HONG T’HAP-TSÖ ZHI-WA DANG
May sickness, poverty, and quarreling be pacified,
CHHÖ DANG TRA-SHII P’HEL-WAR DZAY DU SÖL
And may Dharma and auspiciousness increase, I pray.
With that, make wishes and aspirations.
