of the Master
of Healing, i.e. the Medicine Buddha (fig.).
His full name, Bhaisajyaguru Vaiduryaprabha, means ‘Medicine
Guru Lapis Lazuli
Light’ or ‘Medicine Teacher whose Light is that of Lapis Lazuli’. Lapis
Lazuli is the name of a semi-precious stone of an intense blue colour
and it here refers to Bhaisajyaguru's complexion which is dark blue.
