Medicine Buddha

(tib: Sangye Menla / skt: Baisjaya Guru Vaiduryaprabha)

Medicine Buddha represents the healing power of the Buddhas. The “Radiant Healing Master of Lapis Lazuli” is one of the most honored figures in Buddhism. He protects from karmic illnesses and removes both the symptoms and causes of sickness. Used in all schools of Buddhism he appears in the Sutras which compare his Eastern Pure Land to that of Amitabha's, and rebirth there will develop enlightenment as well. Medicine Buddha is often shown in the company of seven other Medicine Buddhas, one who is Shakyamuni himself. The Historical Buddha often called himself the healer of suffering in the world, and that Dharma was the medicine.

Medicine Buddha is dark blue like lapis lazuli. He wears the robes of a monk and sits in the vajra position. His right hand rests upon his knee with palm facing outward in the wish fulfilling mudra, holding a stem of a myrobalan plant renowned for its healing properties. His left hand lies in his lap and supports a lapis bowl filled with the nectar of long life. Simply seeing or touching Medicine Buddha statues or scroll paintings is said to have a healing effect.

Meditating on Medicine Buddha protects and heals bodily suffering as well as all the suffering of Samsara.
