This Thangka features Buddha Bhaisajyaguru, known as the master of remedies or Medicine Buddha, sitting cross legged on a lotus throne. The most distinctive feature of Bhaisajyaguru is his deep blue color. The tone of the blue is lapis lazuli: the beautiful stone used to symbolize rarity and purity and it is said to have a curative or strengthening effect on those who wear it. In his right hands he holds a myrobalan branch, important compound of several Tibetan medicines. In his left hand a bowl containing three forms of a nectar to cures disease, counteracts ageing and illuminates the mind. Meditating in front of the Medicine Buddha thangka can help to alleviate physical and mental stress, increase healing powers both for oneself and others but also to overcome spiritual sickness, attachment, hatred and ignorance.
