Our Chakrasamvara statue with consort was completed with an oxidized copper finish. Additionally, the statue was handmade using the lost wax sculpting method by the artisans in Patan, Nepal. As a result, it is completed in fine detail in accordance with the features required for this deity. Indeed, the artisans of Nepal have been the preferred source of the Tibetan monasteries for many centuries. Therefore, when you purchase one of our Chakrasamvara statues with consort you can rest assured you have procured a monastic quality sculpture.
This oxidized Chakrasamvara statue is depicted in sensual embrace holding his consort Vajravarahi. His consort holds the kapala skull cup in her left hand and the kartika flaying knife in her right hand. Additionally, Chakrasamvara clutches the vajra in his right hand and the ghanta bell in his left. These two ritual symbols establish the primordial union of wisdom and compassion. As such when they are joined in eternal union one has become enlightened.
However, the depiction of our Chakrasamvara statue with consort also shows them stepping on the goddess Kalarati and the god Bhairawa. He is the symbol for the cycle of rebirth called samsara and she is the symbol of Nirvana. Together Vajravarahi and Chakrasamvara transcend both of these fundamental elements. Additionally, the Chakrasamvara tantra is of the mother class of the Anuttarayoga tantra. Therefore, devotees can obtain the mundane siddhis such as flight and the supramundane siddhis such as Nirvana with the Chakrasamvara practice. The Chakrasamvara tantra origins are found at the outset of Tibetan Buddhism in the 8-9th century.
