Nepali Vajrasattva Sculpture Meaning
The ghanta bell in his left hand is the ancient feminine symbol for wisdom and the vajra in his right hand is the masculine symbol for compassion. As a result, our beautiful sculpture symbolizes enlightenment. This is because it is the joining of these two virtues that create Nirvana.
Our Nepali Vajrasattva sculpture represents the sambhogakaya embodiment of the Primordial Buddha – Vajradhara. This embodiment is one or the “3 kayas” (bodies) of the Buddha. Additionally, the sambhogakaya is described as a “subtle body of limitless form”. This means that a Buddha or high level Bodhisattva can use the sambhogakaya to appear in any form necessary to relieve the suffering of sentient life. Click here to learn more about Vajrasattva.
