Vajrasattva Yam Yum Purification | Union of Wisdom and Bliss | Black & Gold Thangka Painting
Designer: Lucky Thanka Handicraft
The concept of union — union of wisdom and bliss — is represented by Father (compassion) and Mother (wisdom) in intimate union. A simple handshake wouldn’t be symbolically up to the task of conveying “union as one.” Yet, sometimes, those visual metaphors are misunderstood — and even lead to controversy.
Vajrasattva is a supreme Buddhist deity who embodies the purity of the enlightened mind. Vajrasattva means”Diamond Being”in Sanskrit.In Vajrayana Buddhism, the principle is purity and Purification. Vajrasattva embodies the capacity to eliminate spiritual impurities of all kinds,particularly neglected commitments toward one’s teacher and one’s own spiritual development.
