Medicine Buddha

Skr. Besajyaguru
Tib. Sangye Menla

This Buddha is blue wearing no ornaments. In his right hand, he is showing the mudra of generosity and holding a mirobalan plant, the universal remedy of all illnesses. In his left, he has a bowl filled with nectar. Meditating on him does not only cure the diseases, but removes all their causes, the Three Mental Poisons - attachment, aversion and ignorance.
