Everyone who sees Medicine Buddha for the very first time is mesmerized by the brilliance of the deep blue colors of his face and body.
“Medicine Buddha is an enlightened being who has unbiased compassion for all living beings. He protects living beings from physical and mental sickness and other dangers and obstacles and helps them to eradicate the three poisons – attachment, hatred, and ignorance – which are the source of all sickness and danger. He is a Buddha Doctor.” – Geshe Kelsang Gyatso
Medicine Buddha helps samsaric patients to transcend pain. He also helps dying patients to accept death. He gives them the realization that though death may be near, there is nothing to fear. Medicine Buddha guides them through the intermediate stage prior to the next rebirth.
