Vintage Hand-Painted Vairocana Buddha

In Nepalese-Tibetan Buddhism, Buddha Vairochana is one of the five Dhyani Buddhas. He represents Rupa's cosmic aspect (form). His two hands are joined at the tips of the thumbs and forefingers and held against his chest. This mudra is termed Dharma chakra Mudra, which means "teaching gesture." Dharma means "law" in Sanskrit, and Chakra means "wheel" in English.

Vairocana is a celestial buddha frequently viewed as the historical Gautama Buddha's dharmakaya in scriptures, namely the Avatamsaka Sutra. Vairocana is also considered to manifest the Buddhist notion of sunyata in East Asian Buddhism. Vairocana is the central figure in Mahayana and Vajrayana Buddhism's Five Tathagatas and is regarded as a Primordial Buddha.
