Vajrasattva Mantra Practice Statue for Meditation and Yoga
We have meticulously hand-carved this classic oxidized copper Vajrasattva Mantra statue in our studio. Our artists used hammers and chisels to carve the intricate patterns in the statue over the course of several months. The Bodhisattva is seen in his typical calm and tranquil demeanor, seated on a moon disc lotus seat. He is carrying a vajra, a ritual item that represents the impermanence and constancy of reality, in his right hand and a ritual bell, which stands for emptiness and the sound of wisdom, in his left hand. The statue is a testament to the devotion and reverence for Vajrasattva and his teachings
The statue is perfect for any devotee like yourself and can be used for various Buddhist rituals and activities like meditation and yoga.

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.
