This finely carved statue of Medicine Buddha also known as Bhaisajyaguru or Menla (Wylie: sman lha; Tib.: སྨན་ལྷ་) made in Kham province (Eastern Tibet). Bhaisajyaguru or Bhaisajya-guru-vaidūrya-prabhā-rāja, what literally means “King of Medicine Master and Lapis Lazuli Light”, is the Buddha of healing and medicine in Mahāyāna Buddhism. Commonly named as “Medicine Buddha”. He is described as a doctor who cures all the sufferings using the medicine of his teachings.
Unlike most statues made for the tourists, all the details of this statue — such as the hands, face, etc — are made very carefully and in the details.
Each statue has some space inside to be filled by traditional way. This hole is closed by cover.
