From: $85.00

The Bodhisattva Vajrasattva is an important figure in different Buddhist traditions and associated to purification, meditation and esoteric practices.
He is considered emanation of the Bodhisattva Samantabhadra and manifestation of the Buddha Vajradhara.
Vajrasattva has two main wrathful forms: Vajrapani and the extremely wrathful form Vajrakilaya.

The thankga paintings of Vajrasattva are very important for the community of Newar Buddhists of the Kathmandu Valley as they worship this Bodhisattva as the perfect teacher during the Guru Maṇḍala puja .
In Tibetan Buddhism the hundred syllable mantra of Dorje Sempa is very famous and regarded as having the ability to purify karma, bring peace during meditation practices and promote enlightenment.

There are different designs of thangka paintings representing Vajrasattva. He can be depicted in the single aspect sitting in “vajra” pose as described in the Yoga Tantras, or with various peaceful or wrathful consorts.
In both representations Vajrasattva holds with the right hand a gold vajra and a bell with the left hand. He is usually depicted leaning slightly to the left and his body is adorned with gold and jewels.
