Hand-Carved Kadampa Medicine Buddha Statue for Healing and Meditation
This Kadampa medicine buddha statue was expertly hand-carved in the traditional Himalayan style by Vajrayana craftsmen from the Kathmandu Valley. This statue is made of oxidized copper, which gives it its final, antiquated appearance. The figure of the Medicine Buddha, also known as Bhaisajyaguru, is depicted in a seated posture on a moon disc lotus seat with his right hand performing the 'Dhyan Mudra' while holding an alms bowl containing the nectar of immortality. His left hand holding a myrobalan plant, a medicinal plant symbolizing the power of the Medicine Buddha to cure illness and alleviate suffering.
We guarantee the statue's longevity and quality as only the best materials were used. The ideal Buddhist shrine addition can be a meditative accompaniment for yourself or any devotee.
