Hand Made Vajrasattva Statue
Our Vajrasattva statue represents the deity of limitless form. This is because Vajrasattva is the Sambhogakaya embodiment of the Buddha. As a result, he is in fact a “subtle body of limitless form”. Therefore, the deity will take the most appropriate form in order to ease the suffering of sentient life. For example, if Vajrasattva is trying to assist a small child he can appear as a small child. However, he can also appear in much more abstract forms such as a pure light manifestation or as the embodiment of a virtue. These forms would be appropriate when teaching bodhisattvas and other high level practitioners.
Vajrasattva Statue Features
This Vajrasattva statue is depicted with the Vajra in his right hand and the Ghanta bell in his left hand. These are very significant Buddhist symbols. The Ghanta is the feminine symbol for wisdom. Additionally, the vajra is the symbol for the masculine attribute of compassion. However, it is the combination of these two symbols that is the most potent. This is because Nirvana has been described as the state where wisdom and compassion are combined.
Furthermore, Vajrasattva is wearing the intricately carved crown and jewels of the bodhisattva. Additional important features include the 3 neck lines, Ushnisha topknot and the third eye of wisdom. This sculpture portrays Vajrasattva sitting in the full lotus pose on top of s single lotus pedestal.
