Inspirational Quote:All the yidams and deities practiced in meditation have the same fundamental nature and are utterly pure. Nevertheless, they have different appearances, which reflect the different activities that they embody and engage in. These different activities are primarily determined by the individual aspirations they made at the time they initially generated bodhicitta. It is primarily for this reason that deities manifest varied appearances. Sometimes they appear as male in which case they primarily embody upaya or method; sometimes appearing as female, in which case they primarily embody prajna or wisdom; sometimes they appear as peaceful and sometimes as wrathful, and so on. In the case of the Medicine Buddha, his primary motivation was to remove all the suffering of beings caused by the imbalance of the elements, which we know as mental and physical illness.
