Medicine Buddha is very popular in Mahayana and also Tibetan Buddhism. Therefore, we pay special attention to detail with each Medicine Buddha Tibetan thangka painting. Traditional Tibetan art must be completed within the standards of Tibetan Buddhism. This is important because it enables the thangka painting to have dual use. As a result, it can be used for decorative Tibetan Buddhist art and also for rituals.
Every thangka painting artist in Nepal has completed training at the prestigious Kathmandu thangka painting school. As a result, when you purchase our Medicine Buddha Tibetan thangka painting you can rest assured you have procured a monastic quality item. Indeed, Nepal has supplied the Tibetan monasteries with sculptures and thangkas for many centuries.
Medicine Buddha is depicted in full lotus pose seated on a single lotus pedestal. Additionally, he holds a sprig of the medicinal myrobalan plant between the thumb and index finger of his right hand. The hand also depicts the Varada or “gift giving” mudra. He also holds the lapis bowl filled with the three lapis nectars in the palm of his left hand. These three nectars can eliminate the three poisons of ill will, greed and ignorance.
Another cure that Medicine Buddha can dispense is the good karma that can be generated by reciting his Medicine Buddha mantra. As a result, practitioners can transfer good karma that has been generated to a person who is afflicted with sickness of body, mind or spirit.
Our Medicine Buddha Tibetan Thangka painting has all the marks of a Buddha. The marks of the Buddha include the third eye of wisdom, three neck lines, ushnisha top knot and elongated ear lobes.
