In Tibetan Kangyur, three sutras are dedicated to the Buddha of Medicine. The twelve ambitions of the Buddha of Medicine are outlined in one sutra, the seven other medicine buddhas' ambitions are outlined in another, and the dharanis or mantras of the countless Buddhas of treatment are outlined in the third sutra. He's also a prominent figure in the Four Medical Tantras, which form the basis for Tibetan medicine and different therapeutic sadhanas.
