The Medicine Buddha is a significant figure in Buddhist teachings known for his ability to heal and his compassionate nature. In this particular depiction, he is surrounded by five Dhyani Buddhas, each representing a different aspect of the enlightened mind. These Pancha Dhyani Buddha figures are often arranged in a circle around the Medicine Buddha highlighting the interconnectedness and unity of all things. Flanking the Medicine Buddha are two other important figures in Buddhist tradition: Vairochana and Shakyamuni Buddha. Vairochana is one of the five transcendental Buddhas and is associated with the element of space.
