The color turquoise is a special combination of blue and green. Indeed, blue signifies the purity of the Buddhas and green symbolizes their readiness to act.

This Vajrasattva statue will wear the adornments very well and they will inspire all those who lay their eyes on your new statue.
Vajrasattva Statue is the “Subtle Body of Limitless Form”
Depending on the geographical region, a Vajrasattva statue is considered to be both a Bodhisattva (Mahayana) and also a Buddha (Tibetan Buddhism). Vajrasattva is described as a “subtle body of limitless form”. Therefore, he can theoretically appear as any form necessary to relieve the suffering of sentient life. Additionally, Vajrasattva is one of the 3 Buddha bodies known as the “Trikaya”. The body he represents is called “Sambhogakaya”.
Although Vajrasattva carries an esoteric meaning he is generally considered to be the crown ruler of all the Buddha families and mandalas. Therefore, Vajrasattva is associated with purification and compassion. Click here to learn more about the origins of our copper Vajrasattva statue.
