Tora Yakushi 寅薬師 / 寅(虎)薬師"Tiger Yakushi"
The protector deity for people born in the year of the tiger or the day of the tiger.
Named after a statue carved by Kobo Daishi 弘法大師 himself, finished on the day of the tiger, in the hour of the tiger.

When the priest of the present temple was still a lay person he was attacked in the mountains by wolves. He fled to the nearby temple hall of Hooraiji 鳳来寺 Horai-Ji (Aichi), and was then saved by Yakushi Nyorai, who took on the feature of a tiger to drive away the wolf. The man was so impressed that he became a Buddhist priest to serve "Tora Yakushi" and placed a statue of this Buddha in his temple.
The statue is now called
sainan yoke no tora Yakushi 災難除けの寅薬師 "Tiger Yakushi to prevent misfortune and disaster".

The 12 Vows of Yakushi Nyorai

01 May a radiant light blaze forth from my body after enlightenment, brightening countless realms, and may all beings have perfect physical form, identical to my own.

02 May my body be like pure radiant lapis lazuli, with a radiance more brilliant than the sun and moon, illuminating all who travel in darkness, enabling them to tread upon their paths.

03 By my limitless insight and means, may I enable all beings to obtain the necessities of life.

04 May all beings be shown the path of enlightenment and may adherents to the sravaka or pratyekabuddha paths become established in Mahayana practices.

05 May all beings be aided to follow the precepts of moral conduct. After hearing my name, those who have broken the precepts will be aided to regain their purity and prevented from sinking to a woesome path of existence.

06 May all who are deformed or handicapped in any way have their deformities removed upon hearing my name.

07 May all who are ill be cured upon hearing my name.

08 May all sentient beings who are restrained by their circumstances of birth find a favourable rebirth and progress towards Liberation.

09 May all who are caught in Mara's net, entangled in negative views, be caused to gain correct views and thus practice the Bodhisattva Way.

10 May all who are punished by the king be freed of their troubles.

11 May those who are desperately famished be given food. May they ultimately taste the sublime Teachings.

12 May all who are destitute of clothes obtain attractive garments and various adornments upon concentrating on my name.
