Antibiotics, chemotherapy, surgery and a myriad of drugs are used to cure illnesses, but are they always effective? What about relapses? Where do illnesses and suffering come from in the first place?

The Buddha, 2,500 years ago spoke the Medicine Master Sutra for “the purpose of bringing benefit, peace and joy to beings.” He explains how those with “skin disease, insanity or various other sicknesses or sufferings... shall be free of sickness and suffering.”

So how can one avoid these sources of illness and how can one overcome illness? The Medicine Master Sutra gives explicit advice from the Buddha.

This English translation includes an esoteric mantra for quelling disasters and lengthening life and extensive commentary from the late Master Hua.
