Those With Great Sicknesses Should [Be] Mindful [Of] Buddha
 Of all sicknesses [that] doctors [are] not able [to] heal, [they should] all [be] with this one-flavoured Agada medicine [of mindfulness of Buddha, to] then heal [them].
 [The] world’s doctors [and] medicines, [are] able [to] heal physical sicknesses, not able [to] heal [the] mind, [the cycle of] birth [and] death [and] other sicknesses. [Amitābha] Buddha as [the] Great Healing King, [is] able [to] heal [the] body [and] mind, [the cycle of] birth [and] death [and] other sicknesses.
 All belonging [to] dangerous great sicknesses, [are] mostly due [to] past lives’ [and the] present life’s killing karma then attained. And of people having sicknesses, [they] must sever [from] sexual activities, then can [they] quickly heal. Desiring [to] eliminate past [and] present killing karma, [they] must abstain [from] killing [and] eat [as] veg[etari]ans. Also, [with] utmost sincere mindfulness [of] Buddha [i.e. Āmítuófó: 阿弥陀佛], and mindfulness [of] Guānyīn [Púsà: 观音菩萨], then can [there] definitely [be] quick healing, moreover able [to] cultivate virtues and plant good roots.
 Doctors [and] medicine [are] for healing [the] roots of sicknesses, and [the] Dharma medicine of [the] Great Healing King, [is] also for healing [the] roots of [negative] karma. Those [with] sicknesses due [to] karma arising [are] many. [Of] those people due [to that] outside affecting internal injuries, then getting healing [of their] sicknesses [to be] saved, medicine [is] able [to] heal them. [Of] those due [to] karma arising, medicine [is] not able [to] heal, only [with] Dharma medicine able [to] heal them. [If] able [to] simultaneously [use the] world’s medicine [and] Dharma medicine, with [these] healing all sicknesses, then [for] oneself or others, both [will] obtain true benefits.
