While this image may seem shocking, it has a traditional meaning in Tantric Buddhism. The pose represents the mystical union of the active force, or method (Upaya, conceived of as masculine), with wisdom (Prajna , conceived of as feminine) in a fusion necessary to overcome the false duality of separation between people.
It is believed that during the primordial time, the Yab Yum Buddha saw that the mind was often fooled into believing there was a distinction between "I" and "you". Thus He sought to liberate his mind from this false distinction. Similar to the Yin Yang symbol in China, it shows that two seeming distinctions actually exist as one, dependent on one another.

Great pleasure dealing with Lucky Thangka. Beautiful and well executed pieces. Very responsive and helpful staff. Highly recommended
I am very happy with the quality of the seeds and i use it to count my mantra as it has 21 bodhi, which is so difficult to fine else where. Besides that Prateek’s impeccable service and advice is an incentive for me to purchase items from him. I will gladly recommend this website to you.
