The Medicine Buddha Sutra 
​(Chinese: 藥師琉璃光如來本願經)

Medicine Buddha, the Buddha of healing in Chinese Buddhism, is believed to cure all suffering (both physical and mental) of sentient beings. The Medicine Buddha Sutra is commonly chanted and recited in Buddhist monasteries, and the Medicine Buddha’s twelve great vows are widely praised.

在漢傳佛教中,藥師佛因為他的殊勝功德被廣泛地禮拜、供養,《藥師琉璃光如來本願功德經》也在佛教寺院盛行。其中介紹的藥師佛的十二大願更是被世人傳頌至今。
