  Vajrasattva

 

Nepal

Vajrasattva is usually depicted holding a vajra against his chest and a typical bell, known as Vajraghanta (fig.), against his left hip. Here, he also wears a crown styled in the form of a vajra, on top of his topknot. Vajrasattva is in some ways similar to Vajradhara (fig.).
