藥師法門在大乘佛教是很重要的修行法門。

因爲在現實的社會,尤其科技發達的時代,人類面臨最大的挑戰,内心的不平衡追求物質欲望的享受,忽略心靈净化的倫理道德使國土多災多難。

佛經上云 :一佛出世,千佛護持。

佛陀宣講藥師法門,得到十方諸佛菩薩的贊嘆,如果娑婆國土的衆生造了無量無邊的罪惡,

只要一心存善念,還記得三寶的威德,通過藥師法門修行,仗藥師佛的十二大願

The Bhaisajyaguru Dharma method is a very important cultivation Dharma in Mahayana Buddhism. The Bhaisajyaguru(Medicine) Buddha Sutra emphasizes the liberation of sentient beings from illnesses, suffering, disasters, and misery.

Nowadays in society, especially in this era of advanced technology, human beings are facing the biggest challenge. Our inner imbalance caused to pursue endless material desires, that neglect our inner peace.

Unbalanced mentalities often can be disastrous breed evil sins and crimes that eventually make the country full of disasters. The Buddhist sutra states: “When one Buddha is born in the world, a thousand Buddhas come to support him.”

The Lord Buddha preached the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha Dharma and was praised by all the Buddhas and Bodhisattvas in the ten directions.

The sentient beings in the Saha land have committed immeasurable and boundless crimes, to end the suffering, one should cultivate right thoughts, remember the mighty virtue of the Triple Gem (i.e Buddha, Dharma & Sangha), practice the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha’s twelve great vows to clean and purify our mind.

Buddhist practice is aimed at correcting the inner section of one’s own mind. A clear and pure mind is a prerequisite for the arising of wisdom.

藥師佛因地行菩薩道時, 通過修持戒定慧已經完成佛道,只要每一位發菩提心者虔誠誦經,持咒,念藥師佛聖號,都可以仗藥師佛十二大願,

飢餓的衆生得到好的飲食, 病苦的衆生得到無上醫王, 煩惱痛苦的衆生得到佛法的喜悅。

疑痴造罪的衆生 可以得到身心净化,災難漸消除。

所以藥師法門乃是人間菩薩道的大法門。

法會圓滿當日恭請僧伽帶領四衆頂禮慈悲藥師寳懺,仗此功德回向世界的疫情早日受控。

When the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha on the causal ground, he practiced the bodhisattva way, cultivated diligently and upheld the precepts carefully at all times.

Through such cultivation of precepts, samadhi and wisdom, they attained transcendental wisdom and inconceivable spiritual powers and attained Buddha-hood.

As long as everyone has bodhicitta, recites the sutra, mantras, and recites the holy name of the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha, and cultivate the twelve great vows of the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha, one will achieve supreme Enlightenment.

Hungry living beings get good food, sick and suffering beings get the Supreme King of Medicine, and troubled and suffering beings get the joy of Dharma.

All living beings who commit crimes with suspicion and ignorance can be purified physically and mentally, and disasters will gradually be eliminated.

Therefore, the Bhaisajyaguru Buddha’s Dharma is a great method for humanistic Buddhism.
