Like Akshobhya, Bhaiajyaguru is the master of an "eastern paradise" and can form a pair with Amit-bha, master of the "Western Paradise" Sukh-vava. The paradise of Amit-bha is also mentioned in the Bhaiajyaguru sutra.

In Tibet its image can serve as a meditation medium to overcome attachment and negative feelings.
the Buddha of Medicine or Sangyé Menla (in Tibetan) is a tantric deity of Tibetan Buddhism.
Sangyé Menla's tantric meditation was introduced to Tibet in the 18th century by Shantarakshita. This meditation was synthesized in the 19th century by Jamgon Kongtrul Lodr-Thayé. His mantra is considered to have great strength against physical diseases or to purify negative karma.

It is also protected and served by 12 celestial generals, yakshas that can have several meanings, such as hours, months, directions, etc. However, it does not appear on the mandalas taizai and kong-kai because its cult is not of tantric origin. Of the many temples dedicated to it, the most famous is the Yakushi-ji of Nara. In the same city, the Hury-ji and the T-ji are also home to a statue of the Buddha of medicine, that of the Hury-ji dating from the middle of the 17th century.
