Medicine Master Buddha is honored as the foremost teacher in medicine, the king of medicine kings.

SUT605Sanghata Sutra Dharma Paryaya Study IV (Taiosho # 423, 424) The Sanghata Sutra contains stories illustrating the power of invoking the bodhisattva wish; and the power of past and present actions to produce expansive results. Imbued with the blessings of the power of prayer invoked by Shakyamuni Buddha himself, recitation of this sutra produces a great mass of positive karma that can quickly ripen, even in this life. Just by hearing the Sanghata Sutra we accumulate inconceivable amounts of merit. In this way we take care of not only the wishes of this life but also those of future lives and become closer to liberation and finally enlightenment, when we gain the ability to free numberless sentient beings from all their suffering. MP3 recited by Lama Zopa Rinpoche. Although it was visited often and with great enthusiasm for centuries by Buddhists in India and Central Asia, the wondrous Sanghāta was largely forgotten by Buddhists from the 11th century onwards, until very recently. In 2002, the text was re-introduced.

As with most Mahayana scriptures, it treats Buddha not as merely a man of ancient India, but as a cosmic principle. Differing from the austere and non-theist Theravada scriptures, it is full of gods and goddesses, heavens, jewelled trees and spirt beings. The Avatamsaka became very influential in Tibet, China and Japan. SUT620 Prajna Paramita (Heart) Sutra (Sanskrit: Prajnahrdayasutra; Tibetan: Shes rab snying po'i mdo; Bcom Idan 'das ma shes rab kyi pha rol tu phyin pa'I snying po) Study IV - Taisho No. 251 - The Heart of the Perfection of Wisdom Sutra has been translated into English from Sanskrit, Mandarin, and Tibetan versions consulting commentaries from India, China & Tibet and previous good translations. The Heart Sutra is familiar to Buddhists everywhere. Includes MP3 by HH Dalai Lama. What makes this course special are the standless verses composed by the late Venerable Master Hsuan Hua to annotate each section of the sutra. The verses take their name from the line of the verse of the Sixth Patriarch Hui Neng that say, “The bright mirror has no stand.” These standless verses, filled with the flavor of Chan meditation, delve into the deeper meanings of the sutra. The commentary of Master Hua, covering both the sutra text and his standless verses, is rich in classic definitions of terms and concepts and sprinkled with stories that both appeal to the people and the world of today and tomorrow. SUT630 Ksitigarbha (Earth Store) Sutra Study III SUT631 Three-fold Lotus (Dharma Flower) Sutra Study I (Sanskrit: Saddharma Pundarika Sutra, Chinese: Miao-fa-lien-hua-ching, Tibetan: Dam pa'i chos pad ma dkar po'i mdo [White Lotus of the Sacred Doctrine Scripture]: Tibetan Tripitaka Tangyur Toh. NE 113) - Buddhist Tantra - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies - Taisho No. T 262, 12, 277: Examines the Threefold Lotus Sutra – Saddharma-Pundarika Sutra, The Sutra of Innumerable Beings, The Sutra of the Lotus Flower of the Wonderful Law, The Sutra of Meditation on the Bodhisattva Universal Virtue (Samantabhadra) SUT632 Great Compassion Heart Dharani (Mantra) Sutra Study IV - Buddhist Tantra - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies SUT635 Vajra Prajna Paramita (Diamond Cutter) Sutra (Vajracchedika-Prajna-Paramita Sutra, Chinese: Chin-kang-pan-jo-po-lo-mi-ching) Study II - Taisho No. 235, Toh. NE 16. Translated by Kumarajiva: Next to the Heart Sutra (Taisho 11), Vajra Sutra is the most widely read sutra of the Prajnaparamita literature, and has been especially highly valued among Dhyana Samadhi Meditators (Ch'an or Zen). This Sutra, known also by its abbreviated title of Diamond Sutra, deals in detail with the concept that everything existing in the universe has without exception no substance and thus no 'self'. Vajra means diamond or adamantine and refers to anything solid or durable or stable and hence means victorious or supreme. Prajna is the perfect wisdom of a Buddha. Vajra is a Sanskrit word which defies translation because of its numerous connotations, but essentially vajra is an indestructible substance, usually represented by diamond. Vajra refers to the vajra mind, the vajra nature, and the vajra prajna. SUT640 Vimalakirti Nirdesha Sutra Study I (Sanskrit: Vimalakirtinirdesa-sutra, Chinese: Wéimójié suǒshuō jīng, 維摩詰所說經, Wei-mo-chieh so-shuo ching, Tibetan) - Buddhist Tantra - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies - Taisho No. T 475, Tibetan Toh. NE 176 - This scripture is considered one of the most profound, as well as literarily excellent of the Indian Mahāyāna sutras. Vimalakirti expounds the profound principle of Mahāyāna as opposed to lesser vehicle teachings, focusing on the explication of the meaning of non-duality. A significant aspect of the scripture is the fact that it is a teaching addressed to high-ranking Buddhist disciples through the mouth of the layman bodhisattva Vimalakīrti, who expounds the doctrine of emptiness in depth, eventually resorting to silence. As a result a discussion of the profound teachings of the Mahayana unfolds between Vimalakirti and Manjushri. This Sutra is held in very high regard in Japan and China and reveals the true nature of planet Earth which is not seen by ordinary deluded beings. SUT645 Lankavatara Sutra Study I (Sanskrit: Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra, Mandarin: Lèngqié ābáduōluó bǎojīng, 楞伽阿跋多羅寶經, Leng-chia a-pa-to-lo pao-ching; Dàshèng rù lèngqié jīng, 大乘入楞伽經, Ta-sheng ju leng-chia ching) - The Lengqie abaduoluo baojing; Called Descent to Lanka Scripture, Taisho No. T 670, K 159, Tibetan Toh. NE 107. Guṇabhadra's 求那跋陀羅 partial translation of the sūtra (in around 443), which was the second of the four translations, and which has traditionally been highly regarded. Also abbreviated as 楞伽經 and 楞伽阿跋經. The original text is thought to have been put together around 400 CE; the Sanskrit text is extant. The naming of the sūtra comes from the indication of the Buddha's entry into Mt. Laṅka (present-day Sri Lanka) to teach his doctrine. Research on the Laṅkāvatāra-sūtra was stimulated by its mention in connection with the Chan line associated with Bodhidharma 菩提達磨 and Huike 慧可 in the Tang Biographies of Eminent Monks. The text's key doctrinal positions include the explanation of the two kinds of selflessness 二無我 and the four kinds of meditation 四種禪. SUT647 Death and Dying and the Tibetan Book of the Dead - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies SUT644 Eight Verses of Mind Training (Tibetan: Lojong) or The Eight Verses (Tibetan: Tsik- gye Mar) by Dorje Seng-ge (1044- 1123) - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies: Eight Verses of Thought Transformation root text together with the practice of The Everflowing Nectar of the Mahayana Thought Training (a 1000-arm Chenrezig practice coupled with the eight verses): The Everflowing Nectar of the Mahayana Thought Training Annihilating the Demon of the Self-Cherishing Mind: Tibetan Root Text by Langri Geshe Tangpa Dorje Senghe, Translation by Lama Thubten Zopa Rinpoche. eight-verse teaching that contains the entire technique for transforming the mind into relative and absolute bodhichitta.

SUT655 Buddhist Tantra: The Bliss of Inner Fire: The Heart Practice of the Six Yogas of Naropa - Commentary by Lama Yeshe and Lama Tsong Khapa with H.H. the Dalai Lama's Commentary - Buddhist Tantra - Part of Tibetan Ayurvedic Medicine Studies - The Tibetan tradition known as the Six Yogas of Naropa is one of the most popular tantric systems with all schools of Tibetan Buddhism.

These “six yogas” – inner heat (tummo), illusory body, clear light, consciousness transference, forceful projection, and bardo yoga – continue to be one of the most important living meditation traditions in the Land of Snows.
