Medicine Buddha ( in Sanskrit he is called Bhaisajya Guru Vaidurya Prabha Raja) is the Buddha of Healing. He is Described as a Buddha who cures suffering using the medicine of his Teaching. His Color is Blue like lapis Lazuli. His right hand holds a branch of myrobalan plant in Varadamudra (granding posture) Left hand is in lap holding an alms bowl which signifies medicine which heals all sickness of sentient beings.
On our medicine Buddha prayer flags there is prayers to him with English translation.
“Blue in color with mudra of Granding the sumprem;
who accomplished twelve prayers;
Majestic with the glory of two accumulations;
Glorious one of the Buddha field lapis light;
I prostrate to Medicine Guru, King of Doctors;
Bhagawan with equal compassion for all;
Whose name when merely heard;
Dispels the suffering of lower realms;
Dispeller of diseases and the three poisons;
I prostrate to Medicine Buddha Lapis light.
