Homage to Buddha Vaiduryaprabha.
Transcendent one compassionately acting on
Behalf of living beings,
The mere hearing of whose name offers sanctuary
From the sufferings of inferior existences,
Spiritual master of medicine, dispelling diseases
Caused by the three poisons –
Attachment, aversion and delusion.
