Thus I have heard. At one time the Bhagavan was travelling through 
various lands to teach living beings. He arrived at Vaisali ["City of 
Extensive Adornments"] and stayed beneath a tree from which music 
resounded. With him were eight thousand great Bhikshus and thirty-six 
thousand Bodhisattvas Mahasattvas; also kings, ministers, Brahmans, 
lay disciples; gods, dragons, and the rest of the eightfold division; 
beings both human and non-human. The immeasurable great multitude 
respectfully surrounded him, and he spoke Dharma for them.

At that time, the Dharma Prince Manjusri, receiving the awesome 
inspiration of the Buddha, rose from his seat, bared one of his 
shoulders, knelt on his right knee, and inclining his head and placing 
his palms together, said to the Bhagavan, "World Honored One! We wish 
you would speak about such Dharmas as the Buddhas' names, the great 
vows they made in the past, and their supreme merit and virtue, so 
that those who hear them will be rid of their karmic hindrances. This 
request is also for the sake of bringing benefit and joy to sentient 
beings in the Dharma-Image Age
अथ भगवान् मञ्जुश्रिये  कुमारभूताय साधुकारमदात्- साधु साधु मञ्जुश्रीः,

The Buddha then praised the Pure Youth Manjusri: "Good indeed! Good 
indeed, Manjusri. With great compassion you now request that I speak 
about the Buddhas' names and the merit and virtue of their past vows, 
for the sake of rescuing sentient beings who are bound up by karmic 
obstacles, and for the purpose of bringing benefit, peace, and joy to 
beings who live in the Dharma-Image Age. Listen attentively to my 
words and reflect on them extremely well, for I will now answer you."

The Buddha told Manjusri, "Passing from here to the east, beyond 
Buddhalands numerous as the sand grains in ten Ganges rivers, is a 
world called 'Pure Vaidurya'. The Buddha there is named Medicine 
Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, Of Proper and Equal Enlightenment, 
Perfect in Understanding and Practice, Well Gone One, One who 
Understands the World, Supreme Lord, Regulating Hero, Teacher of Gods 
and Humans, Buddha, Bhagavan. Manjusri, when that World Honored One, 
Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, was practicing the 
Bodhisattva path in the past, he made twelve great vows that enable 
all sentient beings to obtain what they seek.

"Moreover, Manjusri, if I were to speak for an eon or more about the 
great vows made by the World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya 
Light Tathagata, when he practiced the Bodhisattva Way and about the 
merit, virtue, and adornments of his Buddhaland, I could not finish.
"That Buddhaland has always been completely pure; there are no women, 
no evil destinies, and no sounds of suffering. The ground is made of 
vaidurya, with golden cords lining the roads. The city walls, towers, 
palace pavilions, studios, windows, and latticework are all made of 
the seven treasures. The merit, virtue, and adornments of this land 
are identical to those of the Western Land of Ultimate miss.

uncountable hosts of Bodhisattvas in that land and will be the 
successors to that Buddha. They are able to maintain the precious 
treasury of the proper Dharma of the World Honored One, Medicine 
Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. Therefore, Manjusri, all good men and 
women who have faith should vow to be born in that Buddha's land."

At that time, the World Honored One again spoke to the Pure Youth 
Manjusri saying, "Manjusri, there are living beings who don't 
distinguish good from evil, who indulge in greed and stinginess, and 
who know nothing of giving or its rewards. They are stupid, ignorant, 
and lack the foundation of faith. They accumulate much wealth and many 
treasures and ardently guard them. When they see a beggar coming, they 
feel displeased. When they have to practice an act of charity that 
does not benefit themselves, they feel as though they were cutting a 
piece of flesh from their body, and they suffer deep and painful regret.

are in the evil destinies, they will immediately be reborn in the 
human realm. Moreover, they will remember their past lives and will 
dread the sufferings of the evil destinies. They will not delight in 
worldly pleasures, but will rejoice in giving and praise others who 
give. They will not begrudge giving whatever they have. Gradually, to 
those who come to beg, they will be able to give away their own head,

Such fools act on their misguided views and further, a cause

These beings will drift endlessly in the realms of the hells, the 
animals, and the ghosts. But if they hear the name of Medicine Master 
Vaidurya Light Tathagata, they will be able to renounce their evil 
practices and cultivate wholesome Dharma, and thereby avoid falling 
into the evil destinies. If those who have fallen into the evil 
destinies because they could not renounce their evil practices and 
cultivate wholesome Dharmas, by the awesome power of the past vows of 
that Tathagata, get to hear his name for only a moment, then after 
they pass out of that existence, they will be reborn again as human 
beings. They will hold proper views and will be ever vigorous. Their 
minds will be well regulated and joyful, enabling them to renounce 
their families and leave the householder's life-They will take up and 
maintain study of the Tathagatas, Dharma without any violation. They 
will have proper views and erudition; they will understand profound 
meanings and yet be free from overweening pride. They will not slander 
the proper Dharma and will never join the ranks of demons. They will 
progressively cultivate the practices of Bodhisattvas and will soon 
bring them to perfection.

constantly beaten, afflicted by thirst and hunger, and made to carry

people, as slaves or servants who are always ordered around by others 
and who never for a moment feel at ease.

engage in legal disputes, bringing trouble to others as well as

others, they scheme to harm one another instead. They pray to the 
spirits of the mountain forests, trees, and graves. They kill living 
beings in order to make sacrifices of blood and flesh to the yaksa and 
raksasa ghosts. They write down the names of their enemies and make 
images of them, and then they hex those names and images with evil 
mantras. They summon paralysis ghosts, cast hexes, or command corpse-
raising ghosts to kill or injure their enemies.

malice, affliction, or enmity. Everyone will rejoice and feel content 
with what they have. Instead of encroaching upon each other, they will 
seek to benefit one another.

year. Because of this good seed they have planted, they expect to be 
reborn in the Western Paradise where the Buddha Amitayus dwells. But, 
though they hear the correct doctrine of the Buddha, they can not 
discern and put enough trust in it. When they hear the name of the 
Buddha of Medicine at the time of their death, then there will be 
eight Bodhisattvas who, with magic powers, will traverse the 
intervening space to come to show them their ways, and amidst the 
colourful flowers of that world, they will be born there by 
transformation."

Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, and sincerely 
cherishes it, in the future she will never again be born as a female.

"Then, Manjushri, when the Master of Healing, Azure Radiance Tathagata, had attained perfect Enlightenment, to become the Buddha of Medicine, he saw by virtue of his vows, that the beings were suffering from all sorts of diseases, such as tuberculosis, bilious fever, or that they were affected by a spell or by poison, or that some were by their nature short-lived, or that some have died a violent death. He wish to fulfil all their desires by putting an end to all these diseases and miseries. Therefore the World's Most Venerable entered into a Samadhi called the Removal of Suffering for All Beings. While He was in this contemplation a great radiance of light of light was sent forth from his Ushnisa, and he pronounced the great Dharani as follows:
"NAMO BHAGAVATE BHAISAAJYA-GURU-VAIDURYA-PRABHA-RAJAAYA
TATHAAGATAAYA ARHATE SAMYAKSAMBUDDHAAYA TADYATHAA OM
BHAISAJYE BHAISAJYE BHAISAJYA SAMUDGATE SVAHA"
When He, in his radiance, had spoken this mystical formula, the earth was shaken and emitted a great light. All beings were delivered from their diseases and miseries, they are now happy because their bodies and minds are at rest.
"Manjushri, if you see a pious man or woman who suffers from a disease, you shall do the following whole-heartedly for those sick people: let them keep clean by taking frequently 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. When one of them has a particular wish, he shall concentrate and recite the magic formula. Then he will fulfil all he wishes, he will be without disease, and will live longer. After his death, he will born in paradise without having to return to this world, and will in the end attain perfect Enlightenment. Therefore, Manjushri, if there is a pious man or woman who very seriously prays to the Buddha of Medicine and, he or she must always keep in mind this magic formula and never forget it."
"Still more, Manjushri, there may be a pious man or woman who hears the name of the Buddha of Medicine and repeats it and fosters it, he chews the Dantakastha (a stick for cleaning the teeth) in the morning, takes bath and rinses his mouth, until he is quite clean. He then prays with incense and flowers, he burns the incense and rubs the body with perfume, sings the Sutra and proffers offerings before the image of the Buddha. He copies the Sutra or has it copied, learns it by heart, has it explained to him. He makes offerings to his Buddhist teacher and gives alms generously and not let him be in want of anything. Then all the Buddhas will protect him and keep him in mind. His prayers will be granted, he will eventually attain perfect Enlightenment."

At that time, the Pure youth Manjusri said to the Buddha, 'World Honored One, I vow that in the Dharma- Image Age, using various expedient means, I shall enable good men and women of pure faith to hear the name of the World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. Even during their sleep, I will awaken them with this Buddha's name.
"World Honored One, there may be those who accept and uphold this Sutra, read and recite it, explain its meanings for others, write it out themselves, or tell others to write it out. They may revere it by making offerings of various flowers, paste incense, powdered incense, stick incense, flower garlands, necklaces, banners, canopies, and music. They may make bags of five-colored thread in which to keep the Sutra. They may sweep clean a place and arrange a high altar on which to place this Sutra. At that time, the Four Heavenly Kings with their retinues and other innumerable hundreds of thousands of gods will come to that place to worship and protect it.

"World Honored One, it should be known that if, in the places where this precious Sutra circulates, people can accept and uphold it, then due to the merit and virtue of the past vows of that World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, because they have heard his name, none of those people will meet with untimely death. In addition, none of them will be robbed of his vital energy by evil ghosts and spirits. Those people whose vital energies have already been robbed will have their health restored, and they will be happy and at peace in body and mind."

they should first make an image of that Buddha and arrange a pure and clean dais on which to place the image. Then they should strew all kinds of flowers, burn various incenses, and adorn the place with a variety of banners and streamers. For seven days and seven nights they should hold the eight precepts and eat pure food. Having bathed until clean and fragrant, they should put on clean clothes. Their minds should be undefiled, without thoughts of anger and malice. Toward all sentient beings, they should cherish thoughts of benevolence, peace, kindness, compassion, joy, giving, and equanimity.

"Playing musical instruments and singing praises, they should circumambulate to the right of the Buddha's image. Moreover, they should recall the merit and virtue of that Tathagata's past vows. They should read and recite this Sutra, ponder its meaning, and lecture on and explain it. Then they will obtain whatever they seek: Those who seek long life will attain longevity; those who seek wealth will gain wealth; those who seek an official position will obtain it; and those who seek a son or a daughter will have one.

"Moreover, if a  person who suddenly has nightmare, sees ill omens, notices strange birds flocking together, or perceives many uncanny events in his dwelling can worship and make offerings of many fine things to that World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, then the nightmares, ill omens, and inauspicious things will disappear and will no longer trouble him.

"When a person is endangered by water, fire, knives, or poison; or finds himself on a steep cliff or in a dangerous place; or faces fierce elephants, lions, tigers, wolves, bears, poisonous snakes, scorpions, centipedes, millipedes, mosquitoes, gnats, or other frightful things, if he can single-mindedly recollect, worship, and make offerings to that Buddha, he will be liberated from all those frightful things. When other countries invade or when there are thieves or riots, if a person can recollect and worship that Tathagata, then he will be free of all of these as well.

"Moreover, Manjusri, there may be good men and women of pure faith 
who, all their lives, do not worship other gods, but single-mindedly 
take refuge with the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha. They accept 
and uphold precepts, such as the five precepts, the ten precepts, the 
four hundred precepts of a Bodhisattva, the two hundred and fifty 
precepts of a Bhikshu, or the five hundred precepts of a Bhikshuni. 
Perhaps they have violated some of the precepts they received and are 
afraid of falling into the evil destinies. If they concentrate on 
reciting that Buddha's name and worship and make offerings to him, 
they definitely will not be reborn in the three evil destinies.

"If there is a woman about to give birth who suffers great pain, if 
she sincerely recites his name and worships, praises, venerates, and 
makes offerings to that Tathagata, her sufferings will be dispelled. 
The newborn child will be sound and healthy, and will have upright 
features. Seeing him will make people happy. He will be keen and 
intelligent, peaceful and secure, and with few ailments, and no evil 
spirit will come to rob him of his vitality.

  At that time the World Honored One said to Ananda, "The merit and 
virtue of the World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light 
Tathagata, which I have just extolled, is the extremely profound 
practice of all Buddhas. It is difficult to fathom and to comprehend. 
Do you believe it or not?

Ananda said, "Greatly virtuous World Honored One, I have absolutely no 
doubts regarding the Sutras spoken by the Tathagata. why? Because all 
Buddhas' karmas of body, speech, and mind are pure-World Honored One, 
the sun and moon could fall, wonderfully High, the king of mountains, 
could be toppled or shaken, but the words of the Buddhas never change.

"World Honored One, there are sentient beings deficient in faith who 
hear about the extremely profound practices of all Buddhas and think 
to themselves,' How could one obtain such supreme merit and benefit 
merely by reciting the name of a single Buddha, Medicine Master 
Vaidurya Light Tathagata? 'Due to this lack of faith, they give rise 
to slander. During the long night they lose great benefit and joy and 
fall into the evil destinies, where they wander ceaselessly."

The Buddha told Ananda, "If these sentient beings hear the name of the 
World Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, and 
sincerely accept and uphold it without any doubts, they cannot 
possibly fall into the evil destinies.

"Ananda, this is the extremely profound practice of all Buddhas which 
is difficult to believe and to understand! you should know that your 
ability to accept this comes from the awesome power of the Tathagata 
Ananda, alI Hearers, Solitarily Enlightened Ones, and the Bodhisattvas 
who have not yet ascended to the Grounds are incapable of believing 
and understanding this Dharma as it really is. Only the Bodhisattvas 
who are destined in one life to attain Buddhahood are capable of 
understanding.

difficult to have faith in and to revere the Triple Jewel. It is even 
more difficult to be able to hear the name of the World Honored One, 
Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. Ananda, Medicine Master 
Vaidurya Light Tathagata possesses boundless Bodhisattva practices, 
limitless skillful expedients, and immeasurably vast, great vows. If I 
were to speak extensively of those for an eon or more, the eon would 
soon end, but that Buddha's practices, vows, and skillful expedients

At that time within the assembly, a Bodhisattva Mahasattva named One 
who Rescues and liberates arose from his seat, bared his right 
shoulder, knelt with his right knee on the ground, leaned forward with 
his palms joined together, and said to the Buddha, "Greatly virtuous 
World Honored One! During the Dharma Image Age, there will be living 
beings afflicted with various diseases, emaciated front chronic 
illnesses, unable to eat or drink, their throats parched and their 
lips dry. Such a being sees darkness gathering all around him as the 
signs of death appear. While lying in bed, surrounded by his weeping 
parents, relatives, and friends, he sees the messengers of Yama 
leading his spirit before that king of justice. Every sentient being 
has spirits that stay with him throughout his life. They record his 
every deed, both good and evil, to present to Yama, the king of 
justice. At that time, King Yama interrogates this person in order to 
tally his karma and mete out judgement according to his good and evil 
deeds.

तत्र  ये ते  मित्रज्ञातिसालोहितास्तस्यातुरस्यार्थाय  तं भगवन्तं  भैषज्यगुरुवैदूर्यप्रभं  तथागतं शरणं गच्छेयुः, तस्य  च तथागतस्य पूजां कुर्युः,  स्थानमेतद्विद्यते यत्  तस्य तद्विज्ञानं पुनरपि  प्रतिनिवर्तेत,

"At that time, if the sick person's relatives and friends, on his 
behalf, can take refuge with the World Honored One, Medicine Master 
Vaidurya Light Tathagata, and request members of the Sangha to recite 
this Sutra, to light seven layers of lamp, and to hang up the five 
colored banners for prolonging life, then it is possible for his 
spirit to return. As if in a dream, the person will see everything 
very clearly himself.

 "If his spirit returns after seven, twenty-one, thirty five, or 
forty-nine days, he will feel as if awakened from a dream and will 
remember the retributions that he underwent for his good and bad 
karma. Having personally witnessed the retributions of his own karma, 
he will never again do any evil, even if his very life is endangered. 
Therefore, good men and women of pure faith should accept and uphold 
the name of Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata and, according to 
their capability, worship and make offerings to him."

At that time, Ananda asked the Bodhisattva who Rescues and liberates, 
Good man, how should we worship and make offerings to the World 
Honored One, Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata? And how should 
we make the banners and lamps that prolong life?"

The Bodhisattva who Rescues and Liberates said, "Greatly Virtuous One, 
if there is a sick person who wishes to be freed from sickness and 
suffering, for his sake one should accept and uphold the eight 
precepts for seven days and seven nights, and make offerings to the 
Bhikshu Sangha of as many items of food, drink, and other necessities 
as are in his power to give.

"During the six periods of the day and night one should worship,  practice the Way, and make offerings to the World Honored One,  Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. Read and recite this Sutra  forty-nine times, light forty-nine lamps, and make seven images of  that Tathagata. In front of each image place seven lamps, each as 
large as a cartwheel. These lamps must be kept burning continuously  for forty-nine days. Hang up five- colored banners that are forty-nine  spans long. Liberate a variety of living creatures, as many as forty- nine species. Then the sick one will be able to surmount the danger  and will not suffer an untimely death or be held by evil ghosts.

  "Furthermore, Ananda, in the case of ksatriya princes who are due to  be anointed on the crowns of their heads, at a time when calamity  arises, such as pestilence among the population, invasion by foreign  countries, rebellion within their territories, unusual changes in the  stars, a solar or lunar eclipse, unseasonal winds and rains, or  prolonged drought, those ksatriya princes should bring forth an  attitude of kindness and compassion toward all sentient beings and  grant amnesty to all prisoners. They should follow the above-mentioned  methods to make offerings to that World Honored One, Medicine Master  Vaidurya Light Tathagata. Due to these good roots and the power of  that Tathagata's past vows, the country will be safe and peaceful, the 
winds and rains will be timely, the crops will ripen, and all sentient  beings will be blissful and free of disease. Within this country there  will be no violence, nor any yaksas or other spirits that harms  sentient beings, and all evil omens will vanish.
"The ksatriya princes who are due to be anointed on the crowns of  their heads will enjoy longer lives and good health, and they will be  at ease and free from illness.
-----missing excerpt in sanskrit----
Ananda, if the queens, the princes, the ministers or court counselors, 
the ladies of the palace, the provincial officials or the common 
people suffer from diseases or other difficulties, they should also 
hang up five-colored spiritual banners, light lamps and keep them 
burning, liberate living creatures, strew flowers of various colors, 
and burn precious incense. Then those people will be cured of their 
diseases and relieved of their difficulties.

Then Ananda asked the Bodhisattva who Rescues and Liberates, "Good 
man, how can a life that has come to an end be prolonged?"
त्राणमुक्तो बोधिसत्त्व आह- ननु त्वया भदन्त आनन्द  तथागतस्यान्तिकाच्छ्रुतम् -सन्ति अकालमरणानि।

 Ananda asked, "What are the nine kinds of untimely death?"
तेषां  प्रतिक्षेपेण  मन्त्रौषधिप्रयोगा  उपदिष्टाः। सन्ति सत्त्वा  व्याधिताः। न च गुरुको  व्याधिः 
भैषज्योपस्थापकविरहितः।  यदि वा वैद्या (भैषज्यं)  कुर्वन्ति। इदं  प्रथाममकालमरणम्।

The Bodhisattva who Rescues and liberates said, "There may be living 
beings who, although not seriously ill have neither medicine nor a 
doctor to treat them, or else they meet a doctor who gives them the 
wrong medicine; consequently, they meet with an untimely death.
----- not in sanskrit version ------Some of them believe in worldly cults, whose deviant teachers 
frighten them with false prophecies. Unable to set their minds at 
ease, they consult oracles to find out what calamities are in store 
for them. In order to propitiate the spirits, they kill various 
creatures. They pray to wang liang ghosts for aid and protection. 
Although they wish to prolong their lives, their efforts are to no 
avail. They deludedly hold to wrong beliefs and perverse views. Thus 
they meet with an untimely death and fall into the hells, never to 
come out.
  ----This is the first kind of untimely death.
द्वितीयमकालमरणं यस्य  राजदण्डेन कालक्रिया। 
dvitīyamakālamaraṇaṁ yasya rājadaṇḍena kālakriyā |
"The second kind of untimely death is to be executed at the hands of 
the law.
तृतीयमकालमरणं येऽतीव  प्रमत्ताः प्रमादविहारिणः,  तेषां मनुष्या  ओजोऽपहरन्ति। 
tṛtīyamakālamaraṇaṁ ye'tīva pramattāḥ  pramādavihāriṇaḥ, teṣāṁ manuṣyā ojo'paharanti |
The third kind is to hunt for sport, to indulge in drinking and lust, 
or to become excessively dissipated, and then to be waylaid by non-
human beings that rob one's essence and energy.
चतुर्थमकालमरणं ये  अग्निदाहेन कालं  कुर्वन्ति।
caturthamakālamaraṇaṁ ye agnidāhena kālaṁ kurvanti |
 The fourth is to be burned to death
पञ्चमं  चाकालमरणं ये च उदकेन  म्रियन्ते।
pa˝camaṁ cākālamaraṇaṁ ye ca udakena mriyante |
the fifth is to drown;
षष्ठकालमरणं ये  (सिंह)  व्याघ्रव्यालचण्डमृगमध्यगता वासं कल्पयन्ति म्रियन्ते  च।
ṣaṣṭhakālamaraṇaṁ ye (siṁha)  vyāghravyālacaṇḍamṛgamadhyagatā vāsaṁ kalpayanti mriyante  ca |
the sixth is to be devoured by wild beasts;
गिरितटात् प्रपतन्ति।  अष्टममकालमरणं ये  विषकाखोर्दवेतालानुप्रयोगेण म्रियन्ते। नवममकालमरणं 
ये क्षुत्तृषोपहता  आहारपानमलभमाना आर्ताः  कालं कुर्वन्ति। एतानि  संक्षेपतोऽकालमरणानि

the seventh is to fall from a steep cliff; the eighth is to be harmed 
by poison, voodoo, evil mantras, or corpse-raising ghosts; the ninth 
is to die from hunger and thirst. These are the nine kinds of untimely 
deaths generally spoken of by the Tathagata. There are also 
innumerable other kinds which cannot all be spoken of here.
------missing in Sanskrit
"Moreover, Ananda, King Yama keeps track of the karmic records of all 
the inhabitants of the world. If there are beings who are not filial 
to their parents, who commit the Five Rebellious Acts, who revile the 
Triple Jewel, who destroy the laws of the country, or who violate the 
precept of truthfulness, then Yama, the king of justice, examines and 
punishes them according to the severity of their offenses. Therefore, 
I encourage people to light lamps and make banners, to liberate beings 
and cultivate blessings so that they can overcome suffering and peril 
and forestall all disasters.-----

These twelve great yaksa generals, each with a retinue of seven 
thousand yaksas, simultaneously raised their voices and addressed the 
Buddha, "World Honored One! Today, by relying on the Buddha's awesome 
power, we are able to hear the name of the World Honored One, Medicine 
Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata. As a result, we are no longer afraid 
of the evil destinies. All of us are of one mind to take refuge with 
the Buddha, the Dharma, and the Sangha to the end of our lives. We vow 
to support all living beings and to benefit them, so that they may 
live in peace and happiness. In whatever cities, villages, countries, 
or secluded forests this Sutra circulates, or wherever people accept 
and uphold the name of Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata and 
venerate and make offerings to him, we, together with our retinues, 
will guard and protect them, deliver them from all distress, and 
fulfill all their wishes. If a person wishes to dispel illnesses and 
difficulties, he should read or recite this Sutra and tie a five-
colored thread into knots, forming the letters of our names. He should 
untie the knots when his wishes have been fulfilled.

At that time, the World Honored One praised the great yaksa generals, 
saying, "Good indeed, good indeed, mighty yaksa generals! All of you 
who want to repay the kindness of the World Honored One, Medicine 
Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata, should always benefit beings and 
bring peace and happiness to them in this way.

call this teaching? How should we uphold it?"

The Buddha told Ananda, "This teaching is called, 'The Merit and  Virtue of the Past Vows of Medicine Master Vaidurya Light Tathagata.'  It is also called 'Twelve Spiritual Generals' Vows to Use Spiritual  Mantras to Benefit Living Beings.'
  ------not in sanskrit version
It is also called 'Eradicating All Karmic Obstacles.' You should 
uphold it in this way.------
