Medicine Buddha is fully enlightened being which means having ability to emanate different forms for the benefits of living beings. Medicine Buddha is the healing Buddha who is believed to heal physical, mental and emotional ailments. The healing mantra practice is effective when the person suffering is engaged in the process. It is even powerful when group practices together for their loved ones or who needs healing. He holds a bowl of Amrit- the nectar of immorality and his colour of skin is Lapis Lazuli Blue.
Shakyamuni Buddha was with his thirty six thousand Bidhisattve discipline when Manjushree asked about the circumstance of world when human beings in this world are spiritually impoverished and their anger; ignorance and attachments are so strong they experience continual mental pain, physical suffering, fears and incurable diseases. Then Buddha illustrated the Sutra of Eight Thousand Verses Principally Revealing the Instructions on Medicine Buddha. Meanwhile Manjushree with his augury realized some of the humans are having doubt and told Shakyamuni to clear the doubts.
Then Buddha entered into immersion of concentration and from his heart emanated light rays inviting the Medicine Buddhas and he came with radiance of Moon and Sun. He comes from the eastern Pure Land called Lapis Jewel Land. This Buddha Land is the nature of wisdom with the aspect of lapis lazuli.
