Hand Crafted Tibetan Sculpture of Vajrasattva
We have exquisitely hand-painted the Tibetan sculpture of Vajrasattva in a traditional Himalayan style made in Nepal. In this statue, we have depicted a deity seated on the top of a moon disc lotus seat with a tranquil expression. We have crafted the sculpture by hand in a pure copper body and gilded it with genuine 24k gold. You can utilize this artwork in different Vajrayana practices and in your regular meditational activities. We assure you that the materials used in this art are of high quality and will last for many years. Deity holding a vajra in his right hand and a bell in his left hand is mesmerizing.

Vajrasatva 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.
