Vajrasattva Mini Sculpture

About The Statue :

We have used the machine to carve the copper body of the mini Vajrasattva statue and gilded with 24k genuine gold over the body. The carving of the body is highlighted with acrylic paint done by hand. You can use this mini statue for various purposes like home decor and Buddhist occasions. We have depicted Vajrasattva seated atop a moon disc lotus seat, holding a bell in his left hand and a vajra in his right hand. The statue's small size makes it convenient to travel while engaging in frequent meditation practices.

Introduction To Vajrasattva :

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.

How do you take care of your statues?

• Place them at room temperature, avoiding direct sunlight.
• Make sure that the area where your statue is placed is entirely free of moisture and dust.
• Place it at the highest place on your altar after being consecrated by Lama/monks. The best practice is to keep them covered inside a glass cabinet.
• Do not use your bare hands or any objects with a rough surface to wipe the face. Directly touching with the bare hand objects can smudge the face, leaving scratches.
