Description

Vajrasattva symbolizes the purification of deluded perceptions that obscure enlightened minds. Vajrasattva holds in front of his heart a vajra (dorje), representing the mind's elightened essence, and, above his left thigh, a bell (ghanta), representing insight into the empty nature of reality. He is also called the primordial Buddha of all Mandalas.

Vajrasattva represents the total purification of the afflictive passions that lead to unfavorable rebirths. Through Vajrasattva's hundred-syllable mantra, obscurations of enlightened awareness can be completely removed.

This Vajrasattva statue is inlaid with semi-precious stones. He wears a beautifully carved robe and a mukut or tiara over his head. He sits crossed legged in the meditative pose above a single lotus base.

The base of the piece is sealed with a double vajra symbolizing the balance of the four elements and harmony of the four directions.

There are 2 separate pieces to this statue: the Buddha and the base.

This lost wax method copper sculpture is a one of a kind statue, hand cast by the very talented artists of the beautiful country of Nepal. Every piece is truly unique!
