This brass statue of Vajrasattva depicts him in his solitary form, without a consort. Nepali Buddhists consider him the sixth Dhyani Buddha and the leader of the five Dhyani buddhas.
Vajrasattva is richly ornamented and wears a crown. He sits cross-legged in the meditative pose. He carries the vajra (dorje) in his right hand with palm upwards against the chest and the ghanta (bell)in his left hand, resting upon his left thigh.
Because it is a beautiful work of Art and it will inform my meditation practice.
