Medicine Buddha meditation is a healing practive treasured by many in the Mahayana Buddhist tradition. We can practice it for ourseves, or for someone we care about who is ill. The oldest Medicine Buddha sutra we know about dates from the seventh century. In that sutra, we are told the story of bodhisattva, Medicine Buddha, who made twelve vows about how he would help living beings after attaining enlightenment.

The holistic healing of mind and body was an important focus of his vows. He promised to help eradicate pain, diseasem adn disavilities of all kinds, as well as promote good health and optimal flourishing.
