Special Features of our Vajrasattva Statue
Buddha statues carry different meanings as a result of different symbols which are included with the statues. These symbols can be physical items, mudras and poses. Some of the symbols that are included with our Vajrasattva statues include the ghanta (bell) and vajra. Therefore, our statue carries an important meaning. This is because the ghanta represents the feminine attribute of wisdom and the vajra represents the masculine attribute of compassion. When these two attributes are joined it creates the eternal harmony of enlightenment.
Additionally, Vajrasattva is depicted with traditional symbols such as the Ushnisha topknot, third eye of wisdom plus the crown and jewels of the Bodhisattva. Last but not least Vajrasattva is one of the 3 bodies of the Buddha (kayas) known as the sambhogakaya. This embodiment is described as the “subtle body of limitless form”.
Vajrasattva Rituals for Karma Purification
Tibetan Buddhists strongly associate Vajrasattva with karma purification rituals. Indeed, Vajrasattva is a complex deity. However, devotees believe that reciting his mantra will clean the five aggregates of all past negative karma.
Vajrasattva has a 100 syllable mantra and a much shorter 6 syllable mantra. Although lamas teach devotees that both mantras are equally effective, the 100 syllable mantra is clearly more difficult. Nonetheless, all devotees need to say is “Om Vajrasattva Hum” and the deity will heed their call.
“OM VAJRASATTVA HUM”
