Myrobalan (Skt. Āmalakī; Tib. ཨ་རུ་ར་, Wyl. a ru ra) is a plant of the Himalayas believed to possess extraordinary healing properties as well as contribute to longevity. It is also believed to be very conducive to meditation practice. The Buddha of Medicine is often depicted with a fruit or sprig of this plant.[1]
