“A Prayer to YAKUSHI NYORAI – The Buddha of Medicine and Healing”
YAKUSHI NYORAI, the Buddha of Medicine and Healing, has been the principal image of worship at Tokozenji for more than 800 years, watching over the health and safety of people everywhere.
This short video is a prayer from Tokozenji.
Through this video, we would like you to feel as if you are visiting Tokozenji, meeting YAKUSHI NYORAI and here praying with us for an end to this pandemic.
With the divine protection of the Tokozenji Buddhas,
may we be calm and free from fear.
May we show care for our bodies and minds.
May we cherish compassion for others.
May we appreciate each moment of each day and feel gratitude for the people around us.
Above all, may we safeguard our lives and the lives of those we love.
May all who have lost their lives rest in peace.
May all who have fallen ill quickly recover.
We express our gratitude to all those serving on the front lines of the pandemic.
*The sutra chanted in the video, ‘Gyaku on Jin Shu’, is a prayer for recovery and cure from all disease.
