Our antiquated Medicine Buddha statue represents the Mahayana Buddhist deity also known as “Bhaisajyaguru”. The Medicine Buddha has special powers to cure illnesses by allowing devotees to transmit karma. Additionally, Medicine Buddha resides in his eastern pure land known as “Pure Lapis Lazuli” or “Lapis Lazuli Pure Land”. This pure land is built on a ground made of pure lapis lazuli which is a beautiful semi precious stone.
The infrastructure and buildings of Lapis Lazuli Pure Land were created from the seven treasures. The pure land of Medicine Buddha radiates with the purified radiance of Lapis Lazuli light. As a result, the followers of Medicine Buddha that come in contact with the light will emerge from the darkness of ignorance into the light of knowledge. Their suffering will cease and they will be granted all of their wishes.
This antiquated Medicine Buddha statue can be used as a a source of inspiration. Additionally, devotees can distribute their good karma with the help of the Medicine Buddha. One method is to faithfully recite the Medicine Buddha mantra 108 times over a glass of water. Next, give the water to a patient or someone who is suffering from mundane illness. As a result, when they drink the water the good karma that has been generated will be ingested. Click here to learn more about the Medicine Buddha mantra.
