Medicine Buddha Mantra for Healing

This mantra is associated with a Buddha known as the Medicine Buddha. The meaning is "May the many sentient beings who are suffering be freed of all pain including disease, death and karma and may this suffering never arise again".  


“Bekandze” means “the elimination of suffering” and is repeated three times for the removal of suffering on the physical, emotional and spiritual levels.  


There are several different spellings and pronunciations for this mantra. I have chosen one that feels the most natural for me. I hope that others can use this as musical meditation for any situation or loved one that requires healing.
