Buddha means the enlightened one who attained bodhi by walking the path through the practice and development of morality, meditation and wisdom. As per vastu and feng shui, placing a Buddha statue in house or work place is said to bring good luck and abundance in one’s life by decreasing the chances of loss and accelerating positivity. This brightly inlayed Medicine Buddha’s brass statue sits in padmasana on a golden hued lotus plinth decorated in an amazingly unconventionalized pattern with the leaves highlighted with red and blue stones, supported by a circular thin base of self-patterned white stones. Buddha’s every hand gesture symbolizes a unique and spiritual meaning.
Medicine Buddha or Bhaisajyaguru is the supreme healer, who with the powerful vibrations of his mantra can heal a person’s body and mind. It is an inbuilt tendency to think that physical illnesses require physical solutions, but the teachings of Bhaisajyaguru are believed to cure people by spiritual practices. He holds a bowl of medicinal herbs in his left hand and the right hand rests on his right knee in Varada mudra and holds the stem of a healing plant in between his thumb and forefinger.
The facial expressions are sculpted in a way that they enhance his calmness, purity and wisdom. Buddha is veiled in an alluring robe inlayed with red, dark blue and light blue colored reconstituted stones, cut and placed to form beautiful flower patterns all over and a thin border of mini beads, decorated with similar kind of circular stones. The charm, glow and smooth texture of this sculpture is a major attraction to the eyes of the viewer.
