Tibetan Vajrasattva Statue | Gold Gilded Traditional Art

SKU: VSN1319


Traditionally Hand Carved Tibetan Vajrasattva Statue.

This sculpture of the Tibetan Vajrasattva represents the purity of body, speech, and mind of all the Buddhas. It is believed that the deity purifies negative karmic imprints created by the ten non-virtuous actions and transgressions of precepts, vows and commitments. Made from a pure copper body and then gilded with 24k genuine gold, this flawless piece of art took our artists months to complete. The statue's representation of the deity shows him placed atop a moon disc on a lotus, clutching a vajra in his right hand and a bell in his left while maintaining a serene look. You can use this figurine for different Buddhist Rituals and meditational practices, and will be a perfect gift for a practitioner like you.

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.
