Sadhana of the Medicine Buddha, The Excellent Lapis Lazuli Vase
This Medicine Buddha practice was revealed by Dudjom Jigdral Yeshe Dorje (a.k.a. Dudjom Rinpoche) when he was eighteen years old, at the command of Gyurmed Ngedon Wangpo, his guru who was considered to be an emanation of the Medicine Buddha himself.; It includes homages to the eight brother sugatas who are the eight manifestations of Medicine Buddha and an extensive, poetic aspiration prayer which inspires devotion and virtue in the hearts of all who read it. Dudjom Rinpoche writes, "The stains of suffering, ignorance, and flaws in beings' mindstreams, for those who encounter this practice, by an excellent stream of nectar are cleansed away without a trace, and in the state of complete liberation, permanent joy, beings come to the glory which is the great breath of relaxation and ease.
