translates as “Medicine Master Lapis Lazuli Light”. The Medicine Buddha helps
to vibrantly transform the roots of inner sickness: attachment, hatred, ignorance
and pride. This is medicine that encompasses a wide and holistic view of health.
True to the bodhisattva ideal as we heal ourselves the world and those around
us are transformed. The Medicine Buddha is revered in Tibet, China, Korea and
into such texts as the 17th century Blue Beryl Treatise (The Four Tantras of Tibetan
Medicine) and you will find a full explication of a syncretic approach to medicine
that fuses a deep knowledge of physical anatomy with the energy bodies (as expressed
through the nadi’s and chakras); a complex and highly sophisticated approach to
herbal medicinals, and an in depth embryology all which is integrated with a deep
understanding of the affects of the soul’s karmic evolution on our present health.
