Ok....

How does one pronouce 'Bhaishjaye '? (pretty sure' bekanze' is probably close, but not exact...)

Bhai as in "buy"

sha is in "sharp"

jye as in "Jye

I.e. very roughly buy-sha-jye

As it is spelled. Tibetans cannot, in general, pronounce the Sanskrit Ś or Ṣ syllable when it is inside of a word. So they substitute a "kh" syllable i.e. akha for aṣṭa, eight.

I read bhaiṣajye (or bhaiṣajya) as "bhai-ṣa-jie" (or "bhai-ṣa-jia").

This is the version of Sanskrit transliteration for the Medicine Buddha Mantra:
Quote:
Namo bhagavate bhaiṣajya-guru-vaiḍūrya-prabha-rājāya tathāgatāya arhate samyak-saṃbuddhāya. Tadyathā, oṃ, bhaiṣajye bhaiṣajye bhaiṣajya-samudgate svāhā.
