Bhaisajyagura is known as the Medicine or Healing Buddha, also named the surgeon.
In his right hand he is holding a mystical plant, the so-called "fully blissful Myrobalan". In his left hand he has a medicine bowl, filled with ambrosia, producing a part of a myrobalan.
Medicine Buddha stands for neutralising the three mental poisons: greed, hated and blinded, and also re-balancing the body fluids air, gall and mucous.
By meditating on the Medicine Buddhas virtues, it is possible to generate a powerful therapeutic force, as a tool to heal oneself and others.
It is believed that an efficacious healing is achieved just by touching the image.
