Health is an important concern for human beings and hence a topic of immense importance in religious thought and practice as well. Where does sickness come from? How can we give meaning to the experience of being sick? And, what methods can we use to heal ourselves? In this Mahayana Sutra, the Buddha tells about another Buddha who lives in the East, the Medicine Master Buddha, who answers these questions. Medicine Master Sutra describes perfect health and healing methods, including visualization, mantras, and contemplation.
Ultimately, sickness is traced back to the roots of suffering: ignorance and desire. This translation of the Sutra includes commentary by Tripitaka Master Hsuan Hua, which explains the text, supplying context, and presenting the teaching as an invaluable aspect of Buddhism.
