In the Sutra of the Master of Healing the Buddha also revealed to Manjusri the great dharani (mystical formula) which one should recite for the purpose of delivering beings from their diseases and miseries:

"NAMO BAHGAVATE BHASAJYAGURU-VAIDURYA-PRABHA-RAJAYA. TATHAGATAYA ARHATE SAMYAKSAM-BUDDHAYA TADYATHA OM BHASJYE BHAISAJYE-BHAISAJYA-SAMUDGATE SVAHA"

Regarding the efficacy of this great prayer the Buddha said:
"Manjusri, if you see a pious man or woman who suffers from a disease, you shall do the following whole-heartedly for these people: let them keep clean by taking frequent baths and rinse their mouths, give them food, medicine and clean water, and recite the Dharani for a hundred and eight times, then all diseases will disappear entirely. If one should have a particular wish, he should concentrate and recite the magical formula. Then he will fulfill all he wishes, he will be without disease, and will live longer. After his death, he will be born in paradise without having to return to this world, and will in the end attain perfect Enlightenment..."

The above is the excerpt from the "SUTRA OF MASTER OF HEALING" which I get from the book " POPULAR DIETIES OF CHINESE BUDDHISM".

MAY ALL BEINGS BE HAPPY
