Description

The Medicine Buddha, also known as Bhaisajya Guru Tathagata or the Master of Remedies is seated in dhyana asana or meditative pose, also called padmasana. Lord Buddha is wearing a monastic robe. He is seated on a lotus pedestal which is arranged in a double row (also known as viswapadmasana).

In his right hand he holds a sprig of chebulic myrolaban, whose fruits are considered a panacea in both Ayurvedic and Tibetan medicine. His bowl contains three forms of healing ambrosia to cure disease, prolong lifespan and illuminate the mind.

The base of this piece is sealed with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions.

This sculpture was handcrafted in Patan, Nepal by master artisans of the Shakya clan who are considered among the best in the world. These craftsmen are the modern heirs to a centuries-old tradition of creating sacred art for use in temples and monasteries. The fine metalworking techniques have been passed down from generation to generation since ancient times.

This sculpture is a one of a kind statue, handcrafted  by the very talented artists of Nepal.
