In the preceding post, I reminded people about the effects of the #2 Flying Star or Illness Star that also cause accidents. One way, to protect you from it is to wear the Illness Suppression Amulet, and this amulet is proving to be a very useful tool to serve as a shield against the effect of the Illness Star.
However, there is another way of protecting oneself from the effects of the Illness Star, and that is to recite the THE SUTRA ON THE ORIGINAL VOWS AND MERITS OF THE MEDICINE MASTER LAPIS LAZULI LIGHT TATHAGATHA, which is more popularly known as the Medicine Buddha Sutra. But before that, in my previous post called INVITE WONDERFUL BLESSINGS IN YOUR LIFE BY RECITING A SUTRA. I talked about the importance and tremendous benefit one may get when reciting a sutra. By reciting, I mean chanting it out load, reading it out loud, reciting it out load. If you can recite it by heart (memory) then all the better because the merit that you get is multiplied by a hundred fold. Personally speaking I have already memorized the HEART SUTRA, THE BUDDHA SPEAKS OF THE EIGHT REALIZATIONS OF GREAT BEINGS SUTRA, THE 42 CHAPTERS SUTRA, and THE MEDICINE BUDDHA SUTRA.
Since this year the ruling star is the Illness Star, reciting the Medicine Buddha Sutra will definitely bring a lot of benefit to all people. One is sure to get good health by simply reciting this sutra. However, more than that as you read the sutra you will know that one of it’s promise is also that you get protected from evil spirits and evil intentions of other people, but more than that you can also attract wealth simply reciting this sutra. Little do people know that Medicine Buddha is not simply for good health and protection but Medicine Buddha is also a powerful Buddha that helps attract wealth. In fact, the Illness Suppression Amulet, while primarily made for protection against the effect of the #2 Flying Star, because of the fact that it is consecrated under Medicine Buddha this means that it is also a good wealth amulet.
You will find the link where you can download the Medicine Buddha Sutra below but I have written about it before and I have written about Medicine Buddha Himself before. I’ll put in the links below.
But it should be noted though that before reciting a sutra, it is customary the one should brush their teeth first and wash their face, it you take a shower better.
Put your palms together and say – NAMO FUNDAMENTAL TEACHER SHAKYAMUNI BUDDHA 3X. After that one should say also the Sutra Opening Gatha:
THE DHARMA INFINITELY PROFOUND AND SUBTLE
IS RARELY ENCOUNTERED EVEN UNDER A MILLION OF KALPAS
WE ARE NOW ABLE TO HEAR, READ, AND FOLLOW IT
MAY WE TRULY UNDERSTAND THE TATHAGATHA’S TRUE MEANING
This is basically an invocation for the Buddha Shakyamuni helps you understand the sutra.
Please click the link to download the actual sutra – The-Sutra-On-The-Original-Vows-And-Merits-Of-The-Medicine-Master-Lapis-Lazuli-Light-Tathagata. The version I’m putting here is that the one translated by Chung Tai, which is in the lineage of Zen Buddhism.
