Design Concept:

Medicine Buddha displays the distinguishing characteristics of a buddha: a benevolent countenance, a solemn demeanor and the traditional robe. Buddha embodies compassion and wisdom, and the sculpture is a reminder for all of us to love and to care.

Amongst the twelve vows Medicine Buddha made while still a bodhisattva, the second begins, “I vow that in a future life, upon attaining enlightenment, my body will be like lapis lazuli, bright and limpid inside and out.” This vow has been Liuli artist Loretta H. Yang’s guiding inspiration in producing glass sculpture over several decades. Medicine Buddha is depicted with all the distinguishing characteristics of a buddha, including a benevolent countenance, a solemn demeanor, elongated earlobes, and the traditional monastic robe. Buddha embodies compassion and wisdom, and the Buddha sculpture is a reminder for all of us to love and to care.

藥師佛又稱藥師琉璃光如來、藍琉璃光藥師佛王、大醫王佛、醫王善逝、十二願王,是東方淨琉璃世界之教主。由於在古佛經中稱,藍琉璃光為藥師佛法身像,而琉璃色,原為青藍色,所以在作品的顏色上,琉璃工房使用青藍琉璃色來塑鑄法相。藥師佛在過去行菩薩道時,曾發十二大願,願為眾生解除疾苦,因此最後成佛,入住「淨琉璃」世界(國土莊嚴如極樂國)。而他的第二大願:「願我來世,得菩提時,身如琉璃,內外明澈」也是楊惠姍做琉璃二十年,秉持的信念,楊惠姍希望通過琉璃,把藥師佛為人間解除疾苦的善願帶給人間,常駐人間。藥師琉璃光如來面相慈善,儀態莊嚴,安坐於蓮花寶座上。藥師佛,全身青藍色,雙耳垂肩,身著通肩式袈裟,雙足跏趺於蓮花寶座中央,背光處祥雲遍照。

Wishes for Sentient Beings

Because the body is as liuli,
there is no room for the self or ego.

Because clarity emanates from inside out,
there is only room for compassion and wisdom.

Blue, like a clear illuminated sky;
blue, like a rare and precious stone.

From this lifetime to the next,
wishes for sentience.

願願為有情

身如琉璃
所以無我無私

內外明徹
所以慈悲智慧

身藍如青天之遍照
身藍如寶石之珍稀

生生世世
願願有情眾生
