SKU: VSM1852


Traditional Himalayan Art Of Dorje Sempa Prayer

This Dorje Sempa Prayer Statue was artistically sculpted here in our studio. The deity is depicted as holding a vajra (or Dorje) and a bell, collectively representing the Buddha's body, speech, and mind. The vajra and bell are held in turn in the Tantric ritual in the right and left hands. The vajra denotes the Buddha's wisdom, the masculine principle, while the bell stands for knowledge, the feminine principle. The deity's face is illuminated by the halo that has been put behind the statue. The deity is decorated with beautiful body ornaments such as necklaces, earrings, bracelets, and anklets. The halo, body ornaments, robe, and lotus seat, are exclusively adorned with precious gemstones. Crafting this figurine took us months and months of hard work.

This statue has accurate traditional iconography and fine details and will be a perfect gift to a devotee like you from Nepal.

Vajrasattva is 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.
