Bhaisajya Guru in Sanskrit, Menla Buddha in Tibetan, is the Buddha of healing. He is the manifestation of all the healing energies of all the enlightened beings. He is called the supreme physician and his medicine is the Dharma, which leads us to the cessation of suffering, thus healing on all levels.

His body is azure blue. His right hand is in the mudra of supreme giving and holds a myrobalan plant (arura) a healing plant. His left hand is in the mudra of meditation and holds a lapis lazuli bowl of healing nectar. Thus lapis lazuli is considered a healing stone.

Reciting the Medicine Buddha mantra has the capability to heal the mind as well as the body. Mantra can gently open and transform emotional states, helping us to deal with any situation more clearly and directly. Medicine Buddha mantra meditation promotes a peaceful heart and mind. Thus, as positive and joyous feelings pass through each organ and circulate through our whole system, our physical and chemical energies are transformed and balanced, supporting deeper and deeper healing.

Recitation of the Medicine Buddha mantra is considered a powerful meditation practice for healing on all levels.
