Welcome good health and healing with our stunning blue Medicine Buddha Singing Bowl. 

This singing bowl features a 3D depiction of the Healing Buddha (Bhaisajyaguru) on the inside bottom of the bowl- one of the most revered figures of the Buddhist pantheon. As implied by his name, the Medicine Buddha is a bodhisattva associated with healing and medicinal relief. As the "Healer of all Sufferings", he is invoked for healing afflictions of the body and 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.

The blue buddha, as he is sometimes referred to as, is often portrayed as having blue skin, which is in reference to the semi-precious stone lapis lazuli. This stone is highly treasured in Buddhist tradition and believed to possess powerful healing properties. 

 

Easy to play and with a very fine sound, this singing bowl from Nepal is cast from the five healing metals — copper, brass, bronze, silver, and zinc. It is beautifully decorated inside and out. The outside of the bowl is patterned with the mantra of the Medicine Buddha. An exquisite relief carving of the Medicine Buddha adorns the inside of the bowl.

When the bowl is played, the Buddha's mantra is dispersed throughout the air and takes effect, spreading blessings of love and compassion to all sentient beings.

Medicine Buddha's Mantra: "Tayata Om Bekandze Bekandze Maha Bekandze Radza Samudgate Soha"

 

Size: Approximately 6" diameter, 3" h.

We recommend our Lapis Brocade Singing Bowl Cushion (pictured) for use with your bowl (sold separately).

Singing bowl striker included (colors may vary). Blue color of the bowl may vary slightly from images.

 

Visualization while playing the Medicine Buddha Singing Bowl:

Visualize Medicine Buddha sitting in front of you, facing you, in the lotus position, in a human form.

Picture his body to be a deep, dark, healing lapis blue; youthful and calm. He is holding a bowl in his left hand containing medicinal nectar. In his right hand, he holds a stem of myrobalan plant.

Visualize healing blue rays of light emanating from Medicine Buddha's heart into yours, ultimately interpolating yourself with Medicine Buddha.

Visualize this very strongly to feel the effects of his healing light rays showering down upon you, clearing away all mental and physical ailments, and feeling medicine Buddha within yourself.

Repeat his mantra a few times or as many as you can to fully embrace his medicinal energies.

 

Also available are our Manjushri, Green Tara, and Avalokiteshvara bodhisattva singing bowls.
