The iconography of Lord Bhaishajyaguru is distinguished by these two elements. Within the bowl is contained a potion that taps into the inner healing prowess of whichever entity it is applied to. He is seated in the signature padmasana. Along with the stance of His neck and the way the lids shut over the eyes, it puts together the very image of profound contemplation (samadhi). Indeed it is in the deep recesses of samadhi that the Buddha had attained to the powerful state of Bhaishajyaguru.
