Written and arranged by Lama Zopa Rinpoche, A Brief Meditation-Recitation on Guru Medicine Buddha begins with requests to the Medicine Buddhas and follows with recitation of their holy names; recitation of either—or all of—the long, middle-length, or short Medicine Buddha mantra; and recitation of the mantra of Tathagata Stainless Excellent Gold and other dharani-mantras, extracted from the Fifth Dalai Lama’s The Wish-Granting Sovereign: A Ceremony for Worshiping the Seven Sugatas. The practice concludes with prayers, requests, and dedications. Anyone can practice the text, with slight modifications for students without initiations.
