Medicine Buddha is extremely powerful form of enlightened energy. "His radiant body is azure blue. His left hand is in the meditation mudra and holds a begging bowl full of long life nectar in his lap. As a sign that he gives protection from illness, his right hand is outstretched in the gesture of giving and holds the "great medicine" the myrobalan plant (a-ru-ra)".
