Jason Espada recites the entire Medicine Buddha Sutra. Recitation or listening to any sutra is considered a healing practice — the more so for Medicine Buddha Sutra with the Great 12 Vows of Bhaishajyaguru, the Lapis Lazuli Medicine Buddha. Chanted soothingly in classical style, the meditation is serene and empowering. Because of Medicine Buddha’s great vows, any person who recites his mantra or sutra can benefit from his healing energy.
