Medicine Buddha, is seated on a lotus and moon cushion. His body is in the nature of deep blue light, the colour of lapis lazuli. He is adorned with silk robes and magnificent jewel ornaments.

His left hand is in the meditation mudra, resting in his lap and holding a lapis-coloured begging bowl filled with medicine nectar that cures all ills, hindrances and obstacles.

His right hand rests upon his knee with palm facing outward in the mudra granting blessing and holds the stem of a myrobalan plant (a-ru-ra) between thumb and forefinger. This plant represents all the best medicines because of its effectiveness in treating mental and physical diseases.
