Take The Dharma Medicine To Walk The Buddha’s Path

这卫塞起,愿一切众,勤服法药,速行佛道。南无本师释迦牟尼佛。

From this Vesak Day onwards, may all diligently take the medicine of the Dharma, and swiftly walk the path to Buddhahood. Homage To Our Fundamental Teacher Śākyamuni Buddha.

我如良医,知病说药,
服与不服,非医咎也。

I am like a good [spiritual] doctor,
who knows your sicknesses
and spoke of their medicines,
[while] taking or not taking them,
is not the doctor’s fault. 

又如善导,导人善道,
闻之不行,非导过也。

Also like a good guide,
who guides people to good paths,
they having heard but not walking them,
is not the guide’s misgiving. 

释迦牟尼佛
《佛遗教经》

Śākyamuni Buddha
(Sūtra Of The Buddha’s Bequeathed Teachings)
