This paper introduces Mahāyāna Buddhist medicine to the contemporary IR literature. In this paper, we will elucidate the perception towards subjectivity and relationality based upon the non-binary relationality of Mahāyāna Buddhist medicine, and strive to provide a refreshing understanding of the world. In order to achieve this goal, we start this article by focusing upon the way in that the essentialised subjectivity became the norm of contemporary IR even in non-Western regions. Second, we will provide a general introduction to Mahāyāna Buddhism. Here, we will explain the fluid subjectivity of this particular philosophical tradition, particularly its assumptions of subjectivity, relationality, and temporality. Third, we will shift our focus to a practical application of this line of thought, Mahāyāna Buddhist medicine. We argue that Mahāyāna Buddhist medicine is extremely suggestive to contemporary colonial/postcolonial relations in a sense that it provides a practical way to cure those who are suffering full of fear and anxiety generated by the assumptions of autonomy and independence. Last, we will return to the discourses of IR, a particularly recent discussion on temporality, relationality and ethics in order to consider the possible contributions of Mahāyāna Buddhist medicine to IR.
