Medicine Buddha Mandala for Healing :
The Medicine Buddha is believed to be the Buddha of Healing; the true manifestation of the healing energy of all enlightened beings. He wears monastic robes and sits on a lion throne. The color of his body is dark blue and he holds a bowl in his left hand having a medicinal plant called arura. He holds a stem of the arura plant in his right hand.
The Medicine Buddha is the supreme physician and is probably founded upon the legend of a metaphysical Bodhisattva, the Medicine King Bheshajaraja who is mentioned as a dispenser of spiritual medicine.
