Introduction To Healing Buddha Mandala :

Medicine Buddha or the Healing Buddha is said to dispense spiritual medicine when properly worshipped. It is even believed that an efficacious cure may be accomplished by merely touching the image. His right hand holds a branch of myrobalan plant and it is in the varadamudra posture or the giving gesture. His left hand is on his lap, holding a lapis lazuli pindapatra or a container containing medicines.

The Buddha has a long- lobed ears , and curly hair . He wears a monastic robe , and is seated cross—legged . The blue or lapis lazuli color of the body symbolizes that he accepts all the diseases and sickness of all suffering beings himself. The plant myrobalan represents the medicine, which heals all the sicknesses of sentient beings.

Mandala is a tool for meditation or contemplative object used to illustrate various aspects of Buddha’s teachings, meditative instruction, or the cosmological representation of the pure microcosm (pure mandala) of the deity.

The Mandala represents a symbolic Geometric Diagram in Tantric Buddhism, which visualizes the metaphysical interconnection between microcosm and the universe. Mandalas embodies a vast store of Spiritual Energy.

What not to do to the thangka?

When a thangka is not on display, it is usually rolled and stored with other paintings. Pressure from its own weight causes cracking of the ground and paint layers. Rolling and unrolling worsen the damage and eventually result in complete separation and flaking of the paint. Thangka’s that do not have brocade may also be folded, resulting in vertical and horizontal cracking.
