This month’s free gift is the image of Medicine Buddha.
Medicine Buddha is popular in Mahayana Buddhism and is generally worshipped for health. His image can be found all over China, Japan and Korea. Besides bestowing good health upon his devotees, Medicine Buddha practitioners are also supported by the 12 yaksha generals. According to the scripture, they had vowed to support practitioners of Medicine Buddha.
This pendant is made of colored glass and colored glass is considered a precious substance in Mahayana Buddhist scriptures. Popularly known as 琉璃 (Liu Li)
琉璃 or colored Glass has special significance in Buddhism. It is precious because it came from sand.( which is ordinary, insignificant and not attractive) This represents our unrefined characteristic before practicing Buddhism.
Our practice is like the heat and furnace that transform sands into glass. In this way, it becomes purified, it sparkles and can be shaped into exquisites articles.
Another precious quality of Glass is that it doesn’t react with things that it encounter. Thus, it can contain poison but doesn’t become poisonous in itself.
