Yang’s Debut Sculpture – the World’s First Blue Medicine Buddha in Liuli

resides in the 1,300 year old Yakushi-ji Temple in Nara, Japan

Each of the twelve vows from the Sutra of the Medicine Buddha

is dedicated to all sentient beings.

Each vow is a reminder to look at the self

through the compassion of the Medicine Buddha.

The Second Great Vow:

May the body be as liuli, transparent inside and out.

This is the faith that has upheld her.

Allow the light of the Blue Medicine Buddha,

and the color representing selflessness and clarity,

to cast itself on all creatures big and small.

Through liuli, let the Medicine Buddha be the empathy

to alleviate the suffering felt in life.

Embrace it and may it be everlasting.


楊惠姍首創,全世界第一尊琉璃藍藥師

供奉在一千三百年的日本奈良藥師寺

《藥師經》十二大願,每一願都為有情眾生

每一願都提醒,時時觀想自己如藥師佛的慈悲

 

第二大願:身如琉璃,內外明徹

是楊惠姍一路走來秉持的信念

以藍色琉璃光為藥師法身光芒

以天空之藍,代表無私,澄明

普及天下有情眾生

透過琉璃,把藥師佛為人間解除疾苦的善願

帶給人間,常駐人間
