The twelve vows of Medicine Buddha upon attaining Enlightenment, according to the Medicine Buddha Sutra
1☸️ I vow that my body shall shine as beams of brilliant light on this infinite and boundless world, showering on all beings, getting rid of their ignorance and worries with my teachings. May all beings be like me, with a perfect status and character, upright mind and soul, and finally attaining enlightenment like the Buddha.
2☸️ I vow that my body be like crystal, pure and flawless, radiating rays of splendid light to every corner, brightening up and enlightening all beings with wisdom. With the blessings of compassion, may all beings strengthen their spiritual power and physical energy, so that they could fulfill their dreams on the right track.
3☸️ I vow that I shall grant by means of boundless wisdom, all beings with the inexhaustible things that they require, and relieving them from all pains and guilt resulting from materialistic desires. Although clothing, food, accommodation and transport are essentials, it should be utilized wisely as well. Besides self-consumption, the remaining should be generously shared with the community so that all could live harmoniously together.
4☸️ I vow to lead those who have gone astray back to the path of righteousness. Let them be corrected and returned to the Buddha way for enlightenment.
5☸️ I vow that I shall enable all sentient beings to observe precepts for spiritual purity and moral conduct. Should there be any relapse or violation, they shall be guided by repentance. Provided they sincerely regret their wrong-doings, and vow for a change with constant prayers and strong faith in the Buddha, they could receive the rays of forgiveness, recover their lost moral and purity.
6☸️ I vow that all beings who are physically disabled or sick in all aspects be blessed with good health, both physically and mentally. All who pay homage to Buddha faithfully will be blessed.
7☸️ I vow to relieve all pain and poverty of the very sick and poor. The sick be cured, the helpless be helped, the poor be assisted.
8☸️ I vow to help women who are undergoing sufferings and tortures and seeking for transformation into men. By hearing my name, paying homage and praying, their wishes would be granted and ultimately attain Buddhahood.
9☸️ I vow to free all beings from evil thought and its control. I shall lead them onto the path of light through inculcating them with righteousness and honour so that they will walk the Buddha way.
10☸️ I vow to save prisoners who have genuinely repented and victims of natural disasters. My supreme powers will bless those who are sincere and be freed from sufferings.
11☸️ I vow to save those who suffer from starvation and those who committed a crime to obtain food. If they hear my name and faithfully cherish it, I shall lead them to the advantages of Dharma and favour them with the best food that they may eventually lead a tranquil and happy life.
12☸️ I vow to save those who suffer from poverty, tormented by mosquitoes and wasps day and night. If they come across my name, cherish it with sincerity and practice dharma to strengthen their merits, they will be able to achieve their wishes.
Maitreya, the Buddha of the Future, symbolizes the hope for spiritual redemption. Here he is depicted delivering a sermon in the company of bodhisattvas and disciples. King Sankha and Queen Syamavati of the Kingdom of Ketumati, where Maitreya will be reborn, heed his call and set an example for others to follow. They are seen sitting to the right and left, and are having their heads shaved to signify their conversion to Buddhism as well as their willingness to renounce their worldly status and riches.

As a disclaimer, this is not “pro” or “anti” any body, mesh or otherwise. This is meant to be an un-biased comparison. I do not blog for any of these body brands, just have dev kits for a couple as a creator and all but one of these was purchased with my own money.
I wore the same shape on each body for continuity, although personally I tweak my shape typically from body to body as sliders move differently which can be seen above. The body numbers I used can be seen HERE and HERE and HERE. I also used the Velour Sienna “slim” body on all the bodies above EXCEPT Erika, which is shown with a skin included with the purchase. I also didn’t mean to use Legacy Perky, but didn’t include standard legacy just because the only real change in the body is the tatas, much the same reason I didn’t include variations on the Maitreya petite or Kupra Kups. I felt that it was most important to give an overall look at the body instead of focusing on different chest versions. If that’s something someone’s interested in I’d be more than happy to do a more concise look at different chest variations in the bodies.
This is just a look at a handful of the most popular bodies, SPECIFICALLY comparing three of the most recent curvy bodies on the market: Kalhene Erika, Ebody Reborn and Kupra. All three are nice and chonky, but there are obvious differences in those bodies that you’ll see above. I don’t want to offer my own personal thoughts, unless asked for them, but ANYWAY here ya go ♥ I hope this gives some of y’all a good look at these bodies compared to one another. If there are any suggestions, let me know.
If you’d like to see me shape these to speak to their strengths or simply how I would shape them to their most advantageous, please leave me a note here! other critiques and comments welcome!
