Vajrasattva is also known as the “buddha of purification”. In the Japanese Vajrayana school of Buddhism, Shingon, Bajrasattwa is the impenetrable aspect of the bodhisattva Samantabhadra and is commonly associated with the student consultant who through the master's teachings, attains an ever-inspiring, understated and complex grounding in their impenetrable practice.
Six Syllable Mantra of Bajrasattwa: “Oṁ Vajrasatva Hūṁ”
Vajrasattva is seated with his legs crossed in a Bajra posture (bajrasana) on a moon disk above a lotus flower. On the right arm of Vajrasattva he holds a Vajra which represents the active means towards enlightenment. And in his left arm, he holds an upturned bell(ghanta) which is a symbol of emptiness and the perfection of wisdom.
