Our artisans in Patan, Nepal have mastered the art of lost wax metal casting over many centuries. As a result, they have long been the preferred source of sculptures for the Tibetan monasteries. Therefore, when you purchase this Vajrayogini Buddha statue you can rest assured that you have procured a monastic quality Tibetan Buddha statue.
Vajrayogini is the embodiment of the union between great bliss and emptiness. Her three eyes represent her knowledge of the past, present and future. Additionally, the khatvanga rests against her raised left arm. The khatvanga is a traditional weapon that represents the union with her consort – Chakrasamvara. The three severed heads symbolize the three kayas (bodies) representing desire, form and formlessness.
Our Vajrayogini Buddha statue portrays a powerful deity that has transcended passion and other mundane desires. As such, she tramples on the worldly goddess red Kalarati and the worldly god Bhairawa. Additionally, on her diadem are the five skulls representing the transformation of the khandas into the five wisdoms. In her left hand she raises the kapala “skull cup” which is filled with human blood and brains. As a result, she unequivocally communicates her open disdain for the impermanent, unsatisfactory and selfless nature of worldly existence.
Furthermore, she holds the flaying knife in her right hand and wears the garland of fifty skulls around her shoulders. She stands on a single lotus pedestal and the flames of pristine awareness burn around her. Please note that for cosmetic purposes the frame is removable. Therefore, it can be removed or adjusted to suit the preference of the buyer.
