Standing Vajrasattva is a Sambhogakaya Embodiment
Our standing Vajrasattva statue is one of the three kayas (Buddha bodies) called the sambhogakaya. Additionally, he is believed to be an embodiment of the Adi Buddha – Vajradhara. As such, he is the embodiment of ultimate reality and is also closely associated with the Five Dhyani Buddhas, especially Vairocana.
The sculptor of this Vajrasattva statue also depicted him wearing the crown and jewels of a Bodhisattva. However, he also is imbued with traditional symbols such as the ushnisha topknot, 3 necklines and the third eye of wisdom is engraved between his brows.
