This painting is a medical thangka. The basic principles of Tibetan medicine were presented in 79 different roll paintings (thangkas). The typical Tibetan herbs are depicted. Each medicinal herb was given a Tibetan name and marked in Tibetan characters. The historical Buddha Siddharta Gautama often referred to himself as a helper against the sufferings of the world and his teachings were the healing medicine. Understandably, the transference led him to be regarded as a physician for physical diseases. The medicine Buddha Bhaisajyaguru is a manifestation of the historical Buddha. As a result, eight so-called medicine Buddhas have emerged, of which Bhaisajyaguru is the most popular and most respected.
The thangka painting was exclusively handpainted in Changu Narayan, Nepal, and its materials handcrafted. Its ideal place shall be in a naturopathy practice or other center of natural and herbal medicine.
