The King of Lapis Lazuli Light, the Medicine Buddha is a single deity with out any other accompanying deities. The deity is seated in a lotus throne with decorated backdrop. Offering of fruits and plants are placed in front of the deity.
His left hand is lying on his lap in the meditation mudra holding a medicine bowl full of long life nectar. His right hand is open in the mudra of generosity and holds a medicinal plant.
Medicine Buddha is also known as the Healing Buddha. The Medicine Buddha is associated with the Tibetan Medical tantras and has the ability to heal physical and mental afflictions. But the Medicine Buddha is much more than a healer for worldly temporary afflictions. The Medicine Buddha offers the true medicine, which is the sacred Dharma. The Medicine Buddha provides assistance to the sick while guiding them to liberation from the ultimate illness which is ignorance.
