12″ Vajrasattva Statue (Antique Finish)
Our large 12″ Vajrasattva statue is depicted in classic full lotus pose resting on a double lotus pedestal. Additionally, he is fully adorned in the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. Vajrasattva is known as the “subtle body of limitless form” and this is a special embodiment that is reserved for Buddhas and high level Bodhisattvas.
Special Features of our Vajrasattva Statue
Although Vajrasattva is considered by many to be a Bodhisattva, he can also be described as a Buddha. This is because the sambhogakaya embodiment can be assumed by either a Buddha or high level Bodhisattva. As a result, our Vajrasattva statue can theoretically be both. However, the sambhogakaya can take any form necessary to relieve the suffering of sentient life. This means that he will often appear in forms other than a human body. Also, this special embodiment is used as a teaching tool to instruct both enlightened beings and sentient life.
This Vajrasattva statue is depicted holding the classic ghanta bell and the vajra symbol. Additionally, the statue is gold gilded in 24 karat gold and was hand crafted by our master artisan in Patan, Nepal. When you purchase this statue you can rest assured that you have procured a world class monastic quality Buddha sculpture.
