Our Nepali master artisan created this beautiful blue Medicine Buddha statue with a bodhisattva crown and jewels. At the request of the buyer, we would be happy to adorn the crown and jewels of this statue with turquoise and red stones. Indeed, the color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. This is because blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes Medicine Buddha’s readiness to act. Additionally, Tibetan Buddhists believe meditation on the color red will transmute the poison of attachment into the wisdom of discernment.
Blue Medicine Buddha Statue Features
The right hand of our blue Medicine Buddha statue is depicting the Varada or “boon granting” mudra. The mudra is displayed with the right hand draped over the right knee. Additionally, the palm of the hand is open and facing forward. The gesture reflects the gift giving sentiment of the Medicine Buddha image.
His left hand is depicting the Dhyana “meditation mudra” and the medicinal bowl is resting in the palm of his hand. This potion inside the bowl contains the three nectars which heal the three poisons of delusion, hatred and greed.
For inspiration, Medicine Buddha practice is enhanced through faithful recitations of the medicine Buddha mantra: oṃ bhaiṣajye bhaiṣajye bhaiṣajya-samudgate svāhā.” Additionally, devotees can use the Medicine Buddha mantra benefits to transmit karma. The transmission of good karma has a very powerful healing effect that can cure all illness. Click here to learn more about Medicine Buddha.
