The Medicine Buddha (Bhaisajyaguru, Skt.), one of the most revered figures of the Buddhist pantheon, embodies all the healing qualities associated with the enlightened mind. His right hand, extended in the gesture of giving, holds the stem of a medicinal plant. His left hand holds a jar of healing nectar. He is invoked for healing physical illnesses, as well as to pacify the inner afflictions of attachment, hatred, and ignorance.
