We have elegantly hand-carved this statue in a copper body and gilded it with genuine 24k gold. He has an alms bowl full of long-life nectar in his left hand which is in meditation mudra. Similarly, his right hand is in an earth-touching gesture, holding the "great medicine," the myrobalan plant. The design of the robe, lotus seat, and other essentials are magnificently embellished with precious gems and stones.

Medicine Buddha, also known as Bhaishajyaguru in Sanskrit, is regarded as the Buddha of Healing. His teachings aim to free sentient beings from sickness, pain, anguish, and unhappiness while also emphasizing the need to acquire 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 a begging bowl and medical herbs.
