"Birnbaum’s excellent book is a study of one of the most important Buddhas, the ‘Master of Healing,’ who specializes in healing illness, psychological and physical. After a chapter on the role of healing in Buddhism, the book discusses the various Buddhas and scriptures involved in this process, and the rituals through which curative power is released. A scholarly, sympathetic, and well-written book."—Religious Studies Review

"One couldn’t ask for a better book on this very interesting subject."—Philosophy East & West

"A valuable contribution to our understanding of an aspect of Buddhism hitherto little known in the West."—John Blofeld
