Vajrasattva

Vajrasattva is one of the Dhyani Buddhas, but unlike other Dhyani Buddhas, he is sometimes presented independently. He holds a vajra and bell, and is white in color. The Vajrasattva thangkas are usually popular among the Vajrayana practitioners who contemplate upon the deity to purify their correspondences. Vajrasattva’s posture is non-threatening and the deity is peaceful in this two-armed and single-faced form in the thangkas.
