Buddha statue in sitting lotus pose - Medicine Buddha Posture
The Medicine Buddha is depicted with the right hand held facing downward with fingers extended toward the ground, palm facing outward toward the viewer, a bowl of herbs rests in the left hand upon the lap.
It is believed by the Tibetans that the Buddha was responsible for delivering the knowledge of medicine to the people of the world, and in fact the right hand facing outward signifies "granting a boon" (meaning, giving a blessing) to mankind. This is a common hand gesture amongst both Buddhist and Hindu statues.
The Medicine Buddha is venerated by those seeking health, and is more commonly found in the Buddhist temples and communities of Nepal and Tibet.
Note: This is a pretty old statue and has lots of imperfections on its surface, scratch marks and all that according to us add more charm and character to the statue.
