Hand Crafted Sculpture of Buddha Vajrasattva Sculpture
The Buddha Vajrasattva Sculpture has been harmoniously hand-crafted in our studio using the traditional Himalayan art method. The deity is depicted seated on the top of a moon disc on a lotus holding a vajra with his hand and a bell with his left hand. He has a tranquil facial expression. We are the modern descendent of century-old Buddhist Himalayan art of sculpting sacred statues. It took us months of devotion to craft this statue. The body is molded using copper which is then glided with 24K pure gold. For additional decoration, the state is embedded with precious coral and gems alongside painted with acrylic paintings. You can use this art for different meditational practices.

Vajrasattva is typically regarded as the second patriarch in the Shingon Buddhist lineage, the first being Vairocana Buddha. According to Kukai's writings in Record of the Dharma Transmission, Nagarjuna encountered Vajrasatva in an iron tower in southern India, based on Amoghavajra's testimony. As recounted in the Mahavairocana Sutra, Vajrasatva inducted Nagarjuna into the abhiseka ceremony and entrusted him with the esoteric teachings he had gained from Vairocana Buddha. Kukai doesn't go into detail on Vajrasatva or his beginnings.
