Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi.
Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi.
This depiction of the god Shamvara and his consort Vajravarahi is a work of Nepalese artistry. Their embrace symbolizes the union between wisdom and method which leads to ultimate bliss. Closeup of Chakrasamvara and Vajravarahi.
A motif of foliate wheels decorates the crowns the god and goddess wear. Shamvara's hair is arranged in the coif of a yogi. He has four faces and six arms. His first two arms are wrapped in passionate embrace around his consort, Vajravarahi. The first two hands, holding a vajra scepter (symbolizing the male principal or skillful method) and a bell (symbolizing the female principal or wisdom), make the diamond HUM-sound gesture. The Damaru (hand drum made of two half-skulls) in the second left hand shows that Samvara's "voice resounds joyously." His second right hand makes the Varada Mudra of charity or conferring grace. His third left hand holds the Dhanusa (bow) and his third right hand holds the Bana (arrow of awareness), once again symbolizing the dynamic combination of wisdom and method.
Vajravarahi is rendered with an ornate jeweled girdle. In her left hand she holds a skull bowl of blood which demonstrates that she "has cut away discrimination between existence and nonexistence." Her right hand wields the Kartika (vajra chopper) that "cuts off the six defects, pride and the rest."
Shamvara and Vajravarahi are united on a Viswapadmasana which symbolizes their purity of descent and self-creation.
Entirely handmade of bronze in the lost-wax tradition in Nepal. (Price includes free shipping and handling within the continental United States.)
