Medicine Buddha is pictured seated; his right hand holding the stem of the Aruna fruit or Myrobalan between the thumb and the forefinger and resting on his right knee, and his lift hand holding the lapis jar of medicine nectar. He is also described by the aura of the lapis lazuli-colored light in the Medicine Buddha sutra. The lapis lazuli serenity of the Medicine Buddha is healing.
Medicine Buddha assumed the Buddha of the pure eastern land of Vaiḍūryanirbhāsa "Pure Lapis Lazuli" when he achieved Buddhahood where he is accompanied by two bodhisattvas, which symbolizes the light of the sun and the light of the moon respectively. In the sutras, Shakyamuni Buddha taught the Dharani of the Medicine Buddha to benefit all beings, from gods to other people.
How to keep a Brass statue well-maintained?
Brass statues are known and appreciated for their exquisite beauty and luster. The brilliant bright gold appearance of Brass makes it appropriate for casting aesthetic statues and sculptures. Brass is a metal alloy composed mainly of copper and zinc. This chemical composition makes brass a highly durable and corrosion-resistant material. Due to these properties, Brass statues and sculptures can be kept both indoors as well as outdoors. They also last for many decades without losing all their natural shine.
Brass statues can withstand even harsh weather conditions very well due to their corrosion-resistance properties. However, maintaining the luster and natural beauty of brass statues is essential if you want to prolong their life and appearance.
In case you have a colored brass statue, you may apply mustard oil using a soft brush or clean cloth on the brass portion while for the colored portion of the statue, you may use coconut oil with a cotton cloth.
