Tsa'tsas (pron. za-zas) are traditional relief images of Buddhist deities and are used in Tibetan Buddhist meditation practice. They are sacred objects because they represent the various forms of the Buddha. Looking upon a tsa'tsa is thought to purify the mind, remove obstacles and bestow merit. Tsa'tsas may also be given to those who are ill and dedicated to the deceased.
The Medicine Buddha (Bhaisajyaguru, Skt.), one of the most revered figures of the Buddhist pantheon, embodies all the healing qualities associated with the enlightened mind. He is invoked for healing physical illnesses, as well as to pacify the inner afflictions of attachment, hatred, and ignorance. His right hand, extended in the gesture of giving, holds the stem of a medicinal plant. His left hand holds a jar of healing nectar.
The Medicine Buddha tsa'tsa statue is handcrafted of durable resin and finished with a warm cream colored glaze that resembles antique ivory. Made in the USA.
