Inorder to help free others from these sufferings, as well as ourselves, we needto take refuge in the Medicine Buddha.(Through devotion, we generate as a protective force the power of theHealing Buddha.)Homage! Myself and the limitless sentient beings without exceptiontake refuge in the Medicine Buddha, the Triple Gem.I will liberate all sentient beings equal to the sky, who have been ourparents, to the stage of the Medicine Buddha.(Not being an enlightened being myself , I admit that I dont know all ofwhat enlightenment is, and so I aim to clarify my mind, to purify, to bringout good qualities as far as I have known them,and to benefit others as far as I know how to.Furthermore, I aim through this practice to continue to learn what ispossible, to awaken potentials, to gather and receive graces, and to helpothers as much as I can.)I take refuge, until I attain Enlightenment,in the Buddha,who is my own root-gurumanifesting in the form of Medicine Buddha;I take refuge in the Dharma,in all the teachings on healingand the Sanghaall helpful, Noble companionsBy the merit I have accumulated through practicing Generosityand other virtues as much as I canMay I always accomplish Buddhahood for the benefit of allsentient beingsMay I always aim to accomplish this practiceof Buddha activityto the fullest extent possibleMay all beings have true and lasting happiness and all the causes of perfecthealth and happinessMay they accomplish these causes perfectlyMay all beings be free of suffering and all the causes of sufferingwhatever causes there may be for themI rejoice in all virtue,everywhere and in all timesAll are completely equal in deserving our love and our careMay I be blessed to see thisAs we are all the Primordial Buddha, we have the essence of BuddhaNature.
