Description


The Medicine Buddha is a particular representation specific to Mahayana and Tantric Buddhism.

Among Tibetans, the Medicine Buddha is said to be at the origin of the 4 great treaties called "the 4 great tantras of medicine".


History



It is one of the particular aspects of Buddha that is put forward, that of the healer: healer of physical but also mental ailments because the two are closely linked. The disturbances of the mind leading to more or less significant repercussions on the physical body (imbalance which in the long run leads to a dysfunction of the organs).

The 3 causes are desire/attachment, hatred and ignorance, known as the 3 poisons of the mind.



This statuette symbolizes: healing and preservation of good health.

Style We find the style Tibetan in this Buddha statue. However the very essence of the style dates back to Gupta times with the characteristic hairstyle made of hair curls, the unisha at the top (protrusion on the top of the head resembling a bun) and the elongated ears (see Sarnath Buddha).

Posture Sitting, in the lotus position. The right arm makes the gesture of protection, of the absence of fear: open hand, palm down, fingers pointing towards the ground (Varada Mudra). The folded left arm rests on the right foot, the hand holding a pot containing leaves symbolizing medicinal plants.

Head The third eye symbolizes the fire of knowledge. His eyes are half-closed, the expression is serene, fully internalized. The face is perfectly balanced.

Clothing The tunic of this Buddha is richly decorated with leaves symbolizing medicinal plants.

« Fast shipping and very well packaged. Thank you. I am very satisfied with this murti with neat details and all imbued with spirituality. » (Gérard M)
 
« Very happy with the gift I gave myself with the statuette of Shiva Nataraj representing the cosmic wheel with his multiple arms. Bertrand Bellaize, through his relationship with Indian artisans, puts us in direct contact with tribal art, far from the international trade organized for mass production. I can savor every day the purity of the delicate gestures of the Shiva and thus open myself to the surge of spirituality that this symbolism offers me. » (Pierre J)
 
« I, who often did not know what to give as a gift, here is the 3rd statue of Ganesh Art India that I offer in a year, this time a bust of a Bastar woman with an "inaccessible gaze". With joy in many facets: seeing the delighted expression of the person to whom I am giving the gift, allowing a gifted but unknown Indian artist to earn a little better a living and living a simple and perfect transaction with Ganesh Art India. Bertrand Bellaize is a reliable and careful person and his statues are even more beautiful in real life than in photos. » (Eric D.)
