Medicine Buddha Sutra in Tibetan

Post by TashiBob4671 » Sun May 03, 2015 7:56 pm

Hello!

Can anyone direct me to the Medicine Buddha Sutra in Tibetan? Most preferably in a link to TBRC? I don't know much Tibetan but I'd like to use it as my Shrine Text and maybe translate it myself to get a better understanding of the language as I've been doing with a couple of short texts from the site.

Thank you and Tashi Delek!

From memory there are two Medicine Buddha sutras in the Kangyur. I have been creating an index of the Kangyur (but haven't made much headway due to work) and will look it up.

That was easy (because it's the last posting I made on my personal Tibetan Translation Notes project ...)

TOH 504 = ACIP H.472 and TOH 505 = ACIP H.473

Both of these are yet to be translated at 84000.co (although I know there are numerous translations of the first one and have seen or heard of some translations of the second). But the stub for both at 84000.co goes: Tantra-> Tantra Collection -> Action Tantras -> 504 "The Sūtra Describing in Full the Specific Previous Vows of Bhaiṣajyaguruvaiḍūryaprabha" and 505 "
The Incantation of Vaiḍūryaprabha"

TOH 504
in Sanskrit: arya bhavavato bhaisajyaguru vaiduryaprabhasya purvapranidhanavisesavistara nama mahayanasutra

in Tibetan: འཕགས་པ་བཅོམ་ལྡན་འདས་སྨན་གྱི་བླ་བཻ་ཌུརྱའི་འདོ་ཀྱི་སྔོན་གྱི་སྨོན་ལམ་གྱི་ཁྱད་པར་རྒྱས་པ་ཞེས་བྱ་བ་ཐེག་པ་ཆེན་པོའི་མདོ།

So this is something like the “Noble Mahayana Sutra of the Bagawan, Light of Lapis Lazuli, King of Medicine’s Former Vows”. 84000.co titles this “The Sūtra Describing in Full the Specific Previous Vows of Bhaiṣajyaguruvaiḍūryaprabha”. This is probably the sutra that lays of the vows of the Medicine Buddha, although the one that is commonly cited for those vows is found in the Lotus Sutra which is also in the Kangyur. This sutra may reference the seven Medicine Buddha’s as well.
TOH 505
in Sanskrit: arya tathagatavaiduryapradbha nama baladhanasamadhi dharani
in Tibetan: འཕགས་པ་དེ་བཞིན་གཤེགས་པའི་ཏིང་ངེ་འཛིན་གྱི་སྟོབས་བསྐྱེད་པ་བཻ་ཌུརྱའི་འོད་ཅེས་བྱ་བའི་གཟུངས།
and this is the sutra that actually records the mantra (dharani) of the Medicine Buddha. 84000.co titles this “The Incantation of Vaiḍūryaprabha”.

It should be noted that the dharani recorded is not the dharani that we are taught in Tibetan Buddhist centers. The dharani in this text is much longer or is a series of dharani’s. However the dharani taught seems to be extracted from this much longer dharani or set of dharanis.
I did have links to the ACIP material but either their server is down or they reorganized the links (I'll check later today).

ACIP is in the process of moving their Tibetan texts to the Red Hat Cloud. And they are unavailable during this process. :tantrum:

The different sūtras in accord with the emptiness
taught by the Sugata are definitive in meaning;
One can understand that all of those Dharmas in
which a sentient being, individual, or person are taught are provisional in meaning.
