Tathagata Medicine Guru with Lapis Lazuli Light

"Tathagata Medicine Guru with Lapis Lazuli Light" is the holy epithet of the main Buddha of the seven Medicine Guru Buddhas. Maybe some of you have no idea of what lapis lazuli light is like, so I send you the attached file for you to see some lapis lazuli stones, with the hope that you will then know what lapis lazuli light is like.

Attain Enlightenment Soon!
