Adi-Buddha Vajrasattva (Tibetan Buddhist)

Adi-Buddha Vajrasattva (Tibetan Buddhist)

Adi-Buddha Vajrasattva (Tibetan Buddhist)

Adi-Buddha translates to “First Buddha”. This term may apply to someone who is believed to be the first to attain enlightenment or Buddhahood because Adi means “first” or “primordial”. In Mahayana Buddhism, Adi Buddha represents the universe as the source of enlightenment and even the representation of the Trikaya that says that a Buddha has 3 bodies (kaya), one each for Truth, for enjoyment, and the emanation or created body. Vajrasattva is also associated with purification practice. He is also notable for his association with the 100-syllable mantra used mainly to purify the mind (especially before performing any tantric activities).

Consistent with tradition, this thangka of Vajrasattva is represented while being seated on a crescent-mon shaped seat on a lotus platform. He is usually drawn with a five-leaf crown. His clothing is also that of a Dhyani-Bodhisattva (a bodhisattva or meditation). In this case, the colorway used in his clothing and halos around him complements the details of the lotus throne and plants within the painting. His right hand is raised to his chest while holding a vajra, which means thunderbolt or diamond in Sanskrit. It is a ritual tool that represents the indestructibility of a diamond and the powerful force of a thunderbolt, which then represents the power and firmness of the Spirit. In his left hand near his hip is a bell. A close look at this painting also shows his back slightly turned to the left and his face a picture of serenity and calm. Vajrasattva is a form of Vajradhara that is a representation of the peaceful Buddha.

Thank you so much for shipping Ma Shitala.  She arrived safely today on Buddha Purnima.  We greeted Her with camphor and conch blowing, and she now is on Ma Kali’s altar.  She is very beautiful.  Thank you for packing Her so well. Jai Ma
