The Nyingma school of Tibetan Buddhism venerates Samantabhadra as the Primordial Buddha. Our Samantabhadra statue depicts him in sensual embrace with his consort Samantabhadri. His consort represents the feminine attribute of wisdom and he is the embodiment of compassion and skillful means. This yab yum statue is a depiction of their eternal union which is considered to be enlightenment in the Nyingma school.
This Samantabhadra statue with consort depicts them in the finest detail. Art enthusiasts will appreciate the fine detail of the face, fingers and toes. Additionally, the subdued luster of the oxidized finish gives them a life like ambiance. They sit together on a single lotus pedestal. Samantabhadri sits on his lap while he is seated in full lotus pose and depicts the Dhyana “meditation” mudra. Furthermore, Samantabhadra wears the ushnisha topknot and the elongated ears of the Buddha.
Our fine statue was hand crafted in Patan, Nepal using the traditional lost wax method. The craftsmen in Nepal have been perfecting the lost wax sculpting method over a 1000 years. As a result, it displays the finest detail. Additionally, the Nepali sculptures have been the preferred source of the Tibetan monasteries for many centuries. Therefore, when you purchase this Samantabhadra statue with consort you can rest assured that you have procured a monastic quality Tibetan statue.
