Hand-Carved Bhaisajyaguru Medicine Buddha Statue for Healing
We created this stunning Bhaisajyaguru Medicine Buddha statue in our studio using a traditional Himalayan carving technique passed down from generation to generation from Nepal. The figure comprises oxidized copper, giving it a classic antique look. The Buddha sits sublimely in lotus posture upon a moon disc lotus seat. He is holding a myrobalan flower in his left hand and carrying an alms bowl containing the nectar of immortality in his right hand.
The statue is an ideal addition to your Buddhist shrine and can be used as a meditative accompaniment for yourself or any devotee.

His teachings aim to free sentient beings from sickness, pain, anguish, and unhappiness while emphasizing the need for prosperity and enjoyment in this life. Many meditators in the Mahayana tradition admire his healing abilities. He is frequently shown with a blue (lapis lazuli) body and hands carrying an alms bowl and medical herbs.
