Though Medicine Buddha is not the most popular Buddha in China, it is commonly seen in temples and local residences, as people believe it brings healing power. This marble sitting medicine teacher stone statue weighs approx. 80 lbs, and measures the following: 13" by 9" by 29". The historical Buddha Gautama often called himself the healer of suffering in the world, and explained that Dharma was the medicine. The idea is that Gautama can be invoked in case of a disease to reveal the correct healing method to both the doctor and the sick person. Medicine Buddha is the most popular form of Buddha God in Japan. This well preserved Buddha statue is well balanced and brings serenity to ones home and garden.
