Sculpted in a royal lustre of cola shade, having a smooth, solid and glossy texture, Bhaisajyaguru sits in his usual cross-legged posture of padmasana and eyes closed in deep meditation. He is also known as ‘Medicine Buddha’ as he is the supreme healer, both for oneself as well as others. This statue is sculpted in Nepal having the characteristic art style of round face, restricted use of jewels and clothes and maintaining the simplicity. The sharp features and realistic expressions communicate that feel of spirituality directly to the viewer’s heart. As per Vajrayana tradition of Buddhism, any kind of illness can be cured by spiritual practices, whether it is physical or emotional like attachment, hatred or ignorance
This deity here is carved in the iconic attributes of any Buddha figure having long earlobes, conch lines on the neck signifying his soulful voice and short coiled hairs matted together forming a ushnisha at the top. He holds a jar of medicine nectar in the left hand and right hand rests on the knee holding a stem of the Aruna fruit or Myrobalan between his thumb and forefinger; garbed gracefully in a pleated robe with a thin border decorated in an ethnic pattern. The accurate shape and size of each and every feature of this statue enhances its beauty and allures to the eyes.
