  Vajradhara

 

Nepal

Vajradhara is a representation of the Adi-Buddha, usually crowned and with jewels. In this statue, Vajradhara, the primordial Buddha, is depicted with his hands crossed in front of his chest whilst holding a vajra in one hand and a typical type of bell, known as a Vajraghanta (fig.), in the other hand. Vajradhara is in some ways similar to Vajrasattva (fig.).
