Medicine Buddha is traditionally depicted with blue skin, a jar with medicine and a single white lotus. Those 3 symbols serve purpose of reminding the person to stream toward inner changes that lead to enlightenment which consequently brings forth healing of body and mind. Traditionally, Medicine Buddha Mantra is recited in front of his image to draw forth the healing power, symbolically represented by a closed up jar. Such healing is meaningful only if it comes as fruit of inner changes, symbolized by Buddhas blue skin. The healing process is part of enlightenment, the single white lotus represent such elevated state of mind which regardless of consequences always arouse in full bloom. While creating this painting I have used colorful palette which I hope will remind you too to always desire a full spectrum of color in your life.
