The Tibetan mantra of the Medicine Buddha, Om bhaisajye bhaisajye mahabhaisajye bhaisajye raja samudgate svaha. Blue is the color associated with the Medicine Buddha, the "Healer of all Sufferings." 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.
