Medicine Buddha Today

North, Green Wisdom

Green PlantsGreen—Acting in Our World

This wisdom is associated with the color green, the season of summer, the direction North, and the element of wind. The Buddha that represents all these in human-like form is known as Amoghasiddhi, a title that means Infallible Action. He is sitting in lotus posture and touching Earth with his right up, palm outward. The wisdom he is portraying is called All Accomplishing Action, suggesting that when we give ourselves fully to the benefit of our world, things eventually work as they need to.
