Special Features of our Antique 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”.
